Hi.. I recently started my daughter on cereals, oatemeal, and now veggies.... at the pediatricians suggestion. She no longer wants her bottles. She will eat the baby food fine, but doesn't want the bottle. I know she isn't getting much from the food, so what do I do???

How old is your baby? Will she take her formula in a "big girl" sippy cup or cup with a straw? Can you dilute her cereal and mix it with formula? good luck!

She was 4 mos on the 23rd of May. I don' t think the sippy would be good, because she can't hold her bottle yet, and I am afraid she would drink too much, too fast and get choked. I may try diluting her cereal or even the baby food with the formula, just so she gets more nutrition. I just wish she would take her bottles. She literally won't take more than 15 ounces A DAY... and then I feel like I am choking it down her. She opens right up for the spoon though!! :)

Hmmm....have you called your doctor?? Thats not alot of formula in a day and babies main source of nutrition should be from formula until they are 12 months. I know its early but why dont your try some diluted juice? Espically with summer coming you want to make sure that baby is hydrated!! Its funny because my daugther was the complete opposite. She would not eat off the spoon until she polished off a 8 oz bottle og formula

You can try the sippys and see how she does. Most of the newer types now have a valve that only lets the fluid come out if they suck on it. I tried one with mason but he just chewed on it, lol. If she won;t take her bottles Iwould cut her way back on the solids. Don't give her solids until she takes the bottle. At this point, solids are only a snack.
