Katara is 6 months old... She has been on baby food since she was 3-4 months old. Over the last two or three says she has stopped wanting her bottles. I have even tried not giving her baby food and she refuses to eat more than 2 oz of formula. I finally got 5 in her but had to add chocolate syrup... what should I do???

I would NEVER put chocolate syrup in my kids bottles. If she is eating enough maybe she just does not need as much formula right now. Let her just drink 2oz at a time and keep trying before she eats food, after she eats food, every hour in between. Babies will not let themselves starve.

Is she teething? It could be why she's refusing the bottle. Just keep offering it but don't put anything extra into it.
