  • I would suggest that for the bottle that she takes in the middle of the night don't give her formula or breast milk. Give her water. It will go threw her system faster that formula so when she gets up in the morning she should be hungry. It may be a good time to switch to a cup see if maybe that makes her want to drink it during the day.

  • Well I go back and forth with sippy and bottle to see which one she prefers during the day and even if I can get her to take an 8 oz in the morning she still will not eat thourgh out the day and will still wake up in the night

  • i would just rough it out for a few nights and not give it to her in the middle of the night - she'll learn quick.
