My little girl stopped breast-feeding when she was only 2 months old, due to the fact that i stayed long hours at work and she got used to the bottle, now about 3 weeks ago, she started refusing the formula, she eats other soft solid foods for 5 months olds, and she drinks baby tea also, but she does not want the formula. We tried almost all types of formulas in my country but she is refusing, what might be the problem?

Yeah she may not like it, but that is where she is going to get her nutrition from. Maybe put it in a sippy cup for her? Not sure if you are using a bottle.

It honestly sounds like she has to many other things to choose from. The only liquid she should be receiving at that age is formula or breast milk. She may also be eating to much, and is to full for her formula. I would cut back on anything else....not necessarily eliminate it, well maybe the tea, but cut back greatly.

Exactly, i ll try using a sippy cup for her, because she really needs the formula, more especially that she is not taking breast milk..... Thank you so much!!!!

Thank you for your good comment Little Miss, i also tried cutting her off from the tea for the whole day, and i tried starving her for at least 5 hours but no change, my doctor told me that she ain't allergic to any of the formulas we tried, but maybe she is just not a fan of formula at all.
