My baby stopped taking a bottle at 3 months. He is now 6 months. Some doctors say he developed oral aversion due to colic. He swallowed fine from the times he did take the bottle. His bottle intake just slowly declined. He is diagnosed Failure to thrive and now is in the transitional process from a g-tube to mic-key button. He attempts pureed baby food and does swallow but would not survive on this alone. He is even learning to drink from a sippy cup as long as it isnt formula (apple juice cut with water). We have struggled with weight gain this entire time, should I try to wean him off so he will show more of an interest in oral foods/liquids? If so, how should I start? If not, when will he show interest?
