3 1/2 old will not drink milk

its been two day that she's been fussy and will not drink the expressed breast milk, so I figured maybe its something that I ate, so I tried formula and she still cries as soon as i give her the bottle. I try for an hour between her crying and shaking her head furiously for her to take in one once every three hours, i know she is hungry because she keeps sucking her fingers. I'm so frustrated.

  • If you have expressed milk then that means you are BFing...give her the breast, most Bf babies will not take bottles from their moms...If the fresh baked cookies are right there why take stale ones??

    Why are you trying to get her to take the bottle?

  • Try letting her latch now. She may have decided that she wants to nurse!
