plz advise. ds will be 7 months on the 16th. he has been on solids for 5 weeks now, and is loving it! although he is now starting to refuse his formula. it takes half an hour to convince him to have 100ml (3 1/2oz). and mostly he wont take it. he has 4 bottles a day and 2 lots of solids inbetween the first and second bottles. he is asking for a third lot of solids, but im scared he will cut out formula all together, so im keeping him on 2 lots...which he is not happy about. i am wondering if it has anything to do with the amout of solids he is demanding. for his first lot at about 11.30am, he has 5 heaped teaspoons of rice cereal mixed with 2oz formula and half a jar of fruit. second solids is at around 3.30pm, and yesterday he didnt stop until he had 7 heaped teaspoons of rice cereal mixed with water, and a whole jar of veggies. personally i think this amount is abit excessive, and i think it is showing when he refuses his formula. he is also teething so that might be another thing, but he has only been refusing over this past week. any advice? he has also been an extreamly grumpy boy since he started refusing too.

Hey Dee. Hailey was doing the say thing, she was on three meals a day and four bottles and I would almost have to force her to drink them. So I cut back on her solid food, she would much rather eat solids then formula, which i don't blame her. Now do her morning bottle between 6-7 then at 7:30 do ceral and fruit, probably 1/3 c of cereal oat or barley, then another bottle at around 12, nap veggies only 4 tbs, fruit 3 tbs, another bottle at around 2, nap, dinner at 5pm, more cereal about 1/2 c and then 5 tbs of fruit then her night bottle at 7pm. Maybe try cutting back on solids or giving ds a bottle first?? Hope that helps!
