Sorry for some reason i thought the child was over 1 which is why i suggested the drinks. 3 is a little low for a 10 month old. Maybe try adding some baby food, like bananas into his bottle and getting a cereal nipple to help it pass through.

3 bottles... I don't think so, but I have no bottle feeding experience. If he's refusing foods I think I'd try and get an extra bottle or two in him.

As long as he is drinking his breast milk/formula like normal.... I wouldn't worry at all. If he is NOT drinking breast milk/formula either.... definitely need to see the doctor. Breast milk/formula has all the nutrition and calories that they NEED for the first year. Food is just for fun right now. He could be teething or not feeling well or any other multitude of reasons why he is not interested in solids at the moment. As long as he's still drinking his milk... just keep offering the foods on occasion and let him take the lead.

then let the doctor know. Make sure he is getting fluids in him. See if he will drink ensure or boost drinks.

Sometimes my two year old will go most of a day without eating more than a few bites. I don't fight her on it. She will have to drink her "chocolate milk" (boost for kids) before bath time on those days.

have you called the doctor and let them know? That would be the first step.

Has anything else changed? Has s/he been sick? going to the bathroom as usual? Sleeping normal? appear pale?
