gona have to put him on three meals now


Just given him his first bottle of the day, he drank about 2oz, was struggling like mad and threw up the lot. He's not sick after his food for dinner and tea. I don't get what it is about milk that makes him spew!! :@

It's the formula that we've used since he was born so I can't work out why now he can't drink it x

Have you considered switching formula or seeing a doctor? Food isn't enough at this age, at all.

Does he throw up every bottle?

Does he need to change to a different teat? If the flow's too slow, he might be collapsing the teat in his mouth sucking too hard, which will probably make him frustrated and gassy. If the flow's too quick (sometimes the holes in the teats stretch or rip) the milk will flow too quick and make him choke on it.

My baby is the same. Keeps all his food down, then give him a bottle and he constantly throws it up. Same formula as day 1!! Strange and annoying!
I'm gonna ease up on the milk so much(when he is tired, the milk stays down) and try more flavoured waters.

Poor Rory. We're still not perfect here either Beth, it's like milk totally bores him so I have to adopt all sorts of methods of getting it in him! But he's also on breakfast and tea now which he adores. I just long for the day we can stop his milk (Erm that is only Like 8 months to go then....!)

We have really struggled the last 4 days. The first couple she had a stomach bug so i didnt give milk, mainly just water. Now its as though she has decided she hates milk. Its a constant battle. I just hope her intake picks up again soon, dont want her dropping milk this young xx

I wouldn't even consider dropping milk at this age but his solid meals are made up with milk, an oz in his baby rice etc. Then after he has the solid food he will drink a few oz of milk. Just won't drink.it on its own. It's like his tummy needs the heavier food to settle first. Anyway, going ti buy him some baby cereal later. Suppose it is just his bodies way of telling me what he needs. We've gone.from 9oz bottles to where we are now. X

That's exactly what I do! His rice and his porridge are made with his formula so I tend to give him what he'll have of his bottle, then when he gets bored (!) spoon feed his solids. Then he'll usually go back to his milk after with some encouragement!

What I've found is that he'll squirm and reject it if I'm holding him but if I put him in his seat he'll have it. Randomly this seems to be happening to a few of the babies the same age at our groups - one mum has to lie her LO flat on the floor for him to drink his bottle!!
