    My daughter is 8 months old and has dramatically dropped her formula intake in the past few weeks.

    She eats well and is on 3 meals per day with 2 puddings but I can't get her to accept formula anymore.

    She will take an 8oz bottle first thing every morning and drinks anywhere between 5 and the full 8oz. She refuses milk the rest of the day. If I'm lucky she may have another 3-4 oz but often she pushes it away and won't even take that.

    I've tried changing teats, changing formula brand and offering cups rather than bottles but she just won't take it.

    I do give her cereal and milk mixed in with her food as well as yoghurts ect but on days where she only has 5oz it's impossible to make the shortfall up.

    I'm also worried about her dehydrating as she will only drink one cup of water per day at the very most.

    Most other people I know with babies of a similar age give 3 feeds per day still.

    Maia is crawling now too and I'm worried she will lose weight :-(

    Any thoughts? x
