I have a 9 month old little boy who has stopped gaining in the past month. I am still breast feeding but trying to give him as much food as possible but with the heat and teething he isnt eating alot. he isnt overly fussy but my milk is more water than milk. and want to try getting him on a bottle to help with the weight gaining and since im going back to work soon would be very nice to have him ready! please help!!

i have been trying with the sippy cup too , it seems to come out too fast or not enough and he wants to do it himself and he usually just plays with it or throws it..

At 9 months I wouldn't bother w/ a bottle, but would introduce a sippy cup. Personally speaking though... upping your breast milk supply is the best way to get him to gain weight. Nursing him every 2 hours during the day might help a LOT... especially w/ the heat and teething.
