I know this may sound a bit cruel, but just stop giving him the bottle. A child will never let himself get too hungry, and will eventually eat. Try feeding him at lunctime, when you are both properly awake. If he wont accept anything then let him down from where you feed him. Try again in half an hour. If he still wont accept food then repeat.

This may take a little while, and will probably strain your patience.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I know what you mean about having a small place. When my son was born we were living in a 1 bedroom flat. NOw he is 3 year old and we are stuck in a caravan. It can get very stressful. All you can do is keep a positive attitude and hope for the best.

well thats what we are trying right now...and i think that its helping a little but,like one day he'll eat our kind of food all day and barly have the bottle, but then the next day all he'll have is the bottle. Its very stressful. We live in a very small place, and if we just take the botle away I no that he will throw a huge fit about it, and we have no where to put him when he starts throwing the fit.
