My ds wont eat unless he's about to sleep. It worked really well when he was refusing the bottle and just before he'd drift off to sleep id take the paci out and put the bottle in and now he refuses his bottles when he's awake. Its not really a terrible thing but it is a bad habit and one that i would one day need to break so better now-only im unsure how..any ideas? thanks in advance.

Hey a friend of mine's little girl did the exact same thing. I wasn't until she was 2 and had completely fallen of the growth chart did her new ped diagnosed her with a medical eating disorder. She had an over actice gag reflex. She had to go to occupational therapy to relearn to eat. I would check with ypur ped to make sure there isn't an underlying medical problem like a chronic soar thoat from sinus drainage, then start working on modifying his behavior. I;m sure your ped would have some suggestions on that too.
