Hi my baby is 7 months, 1 week old and just out of no where, refused to breastfeed. Normally, I nursed her every few hours and she has been eating baby food as well as some of our food in between. I think her gums started bothering her and she started teething again (she has her 2 bottom teeth in already bout a week ago). Its been 3 days and she wants nothing to do with breastfeeding. She has always refused the bottle and formula in a cup. I pumped a few times and have tried putting my breast milk in a bottle and Cup and she refuses! Ive tried Pediasure, different formulas, and also vanilla soy milk. She has only been sipping some water out of a cup (3 oz) and iI got her to drink a little Pedialyte (1 oz.) Yesterday. ..she has been eating food fine throughout the whole day, though. Will she get enough liquids from eating or should I be as super worried as I am a wreck? I dont want her to get dehydrated and I've never heard of this happening with a 7 month old...
