My 32 week old daughter is not wanting to finish her bottle , and she wants everything that we eat and she loves all baby food but dont get full , my 2 1/2 year old did not do this I dont know what to do... I know that it is good to give her solid food at least 3 times a day but she is still suppost to have a bottle but she dont seem to want to finish it.. and I give her some of what we eat to but I dont know what to do to get her full and I have also tried to mix her cereal in the morning I put the cerea in a bowl and I mix some of her formula with it but I know that is not enough..

my daughter is exactly the same... she will eat all of her food them want more... i dont think its because she isnt full.. but its because they dont understand that over eating will make them feel poorly... my son done the same and i started to only give him half the bottle he used to and same food.. he ended up having only a bottle in the evening... my daughter at the minute drinks half a bottle on a morning... then breakfast... then lunch... then tea.... then a bottle before bed.... my son has 3 big meals a day and he is coming up two in may and he still has a bottle of milk before he goes to bed.... maybe try and give her half her normal bottle instead of the full one might make her want to drink more or might make her not want that bottle anymore and jus have her 3 meals... my daughter will be shortly off her morning bottle... also i give my daughter cooled down boiled water which seems to fill her that bit more....i used this method with my soon too... hope this helps

I've started giving half bottles during the day after the first feeding. :) Less waste, more opportunity.

My daughter does the same thing. I give her baby food and then I make a bottle as usual and just let her drink what she wants sometimes it will only be an ounce other times she'll drink the whole 6 oz. But she is gainin weight fine and is healthy. Sometimes she will still be hungry but just wont want the bottle so I will just give her some of her gerber snacks and let her have those as "dessert" but just make sure that you keep an eye on her so she doesn't choke.
