She should be drinking either breast milk or formula milk up to a year old, even when she is eating solids.

I had this problem with both my kids. I tried every formula and every kind of bottle and they just didn't want it because they had reflux and it irritated them. Once they got to 9 months it got easier when they could feed themselves and use a sippy cup they started wanting milk. Before then I used to walk around with them jigging them to get them to drink at least half the bottle I made.

She NEEDS to be on formula,or breast milk for at least a year. there are several formula's out on the market,find one that works.

I agree with Toni. She has to be getting breast milk or formula for at least the first year as her main source of nutrients. You can start giving her small amounts of solids to try. If she isn't drinking any breast milk or formula, you should take her to the doctor.
