  • Take note of what foods you feed her. They may have caused upset stomach or she could be having an allergic reaction to it.

  • if you have fed her anything she is not used to that could have caused it, but i think you should take her to a dr. Just keep offering her bottle to her. even if she only drinks a little bit that will be ok until you talk woth the pedi.

  • Pinkclover is right, an allergic reaction could be the cause. But I would definitely take her to the doctor, or at least call her pediatrician.

    Also, babies main source of nutrition should be formula/breastmilk until age 1. Solid foods are not nutritionally necessary, and should only be given in addition to bottles. Solids before age 1 are mostly for practice and experience.

    At 7 months old, your baby should still be eating AT LEAST 20 oz of formula per day. If she is not, you might want to think about offering a bottle before solids, or offering solids less often.
