My daughter is almost 8 months old & has ALWAYS been a great eater (& still is minus this bottle issue). Right now this is how her eating schedule has been (its been this same way since she has been on solids at 4 months with increasing food amounts as she seems to want to). Morning bottle (6 oz.) @ 8:00a.m. then a stage 2 fruit...small snack of a small handful of yogurt bites or actual baby yogurt (also with her snacks she gets 1 oz. of juice--so its about 3-4 oz. of juice a day)-Lunch @ 12:00p.m. usually a meat dinner combo of some sort like vegetable beef or what have u...& a 6 oz. bottle-then another small snack of a small handful of gerger puffs or a rice biscuit thing-then dinner @ 4:00 p.m. which is a stage 2 veggie & a 6 oz. bottle--another snack @ 6 p.m. a piece of fresh fruit or a steamed veggie in her mesh food holder--then last she has a bedtime bottle @ 8:30p.m. which is 8 oz. And this schedule has worked BEAUTIFULLY up until 2 days ago where she just flat out will NOT drink her bottles for me anymore (except for the bedtime one--she always drinks that). I just don't know what to do...should i b concerned about this? I think i might call her ped in the a.m. for some advice but any suggestions or helpful tips from u guys would b great--everyone on here always has such great advice. I just don't want her to get malnourished or stop gaining weight like she is supposed to. I have tried giving her the bottle 1st b4 food & last after food...tried feeding her less food...tried cutting snacks out--nothing has worked! PLEASE HELP!!!!
