My son refuses a bottle unless its warm & with rice cereal. He spits it back at me and cries. he loves it! and i've even spoon fed him and he loves it. it helps his Acid Reflux. Also! one more think! my son just went without a bottle for 11 hours but 10 of them he was sleeping very soundly and didn't make a peep the whole night!!! this scares me! he didn't have that much pee in his little diaper and im like... DID HE GO 6 HOURS WITHOUT A PEE??!!! i'll never know!!! :( he seems very happy and content though.

What does his actual doctor say? It could be reflux. Both of my kids have had it, and the symptoms are the same.
I would absolutely NOT give him food. You could really end up doing him more damage. Babies aren't meant to have solids that young. My suggestion is to take him to his pediatrician.

Well... took him to the er because he was real fussy and they couldn't find anything wrong other than he might be teething and be cranky, and thats why he's drooling, and chewing on everything! and getting hot every once in a while. But, im still having problems getting him to take a bottle. he jsut reffuses it until he's so hungry he can't stand it. Idk what to do. Im considering baby food.

Yeah, it is an on and off process. Just go with the flow. He'll be okay. Has his temp gone down and is he eating some, just not as much? Also, rice cereal is a choking hazard in a bottle, not to mention that it's very hard on their digestive system in general at this age. Babies aren't meant to eat solids until about 6 months, which is why that is now the recommendation, to wait until six months.
