  • This might sound crazy but my son now 15 and healthy would not drink formula either, so I asked my mom and she said "give him milk they did not have formula when you were a baby and you did fine". My son now loves milk and is a healthy 6 ft teenage boy/ Good Luck

  • give her some water and juice mixed as well....that will help with the constipation too. if the baby doesn't tolerate real milk try goats milk, that is all I had until i was about 6 years old
