When did your baby stop wanting their morning bottle?

My DD is 9.5 months old and this week she started refusing her morning bottle. Is this normal? I am certain that she would rather have fruit or yogurt......

  • Yes it is normal. A lot of kids that age are already on sippy cups.

  • She handles a sippy pretty well - she does not like juice, pedilyte or anything to drink other than formula - weird I know!

  • Offer her both the formula and some breakfast. Maybe try it in a cup since she handles it well. Mine never turned down his morning formula. He would have 8-9oz of formula AND some other food to eat 3 times a day at that point.

  • My baby nurses, but she stopped nursing before breakfast about that age. I think it's pretty normal. Check with your ped about how much formula your baby should have at this age, but it's probably fine.

  • my daughter didnt like juice until just the past couple months. she mainly drinks milk. sometimes water. i always fed on demand. if she is eating table food, i would just give her the table foods, i would still have the formula ready in sippy if she is using one, so she has a drink.

  • mine is still on the morning bottle but she has breakfast about an hour an half after so i just give it to her to let me just get things going in the morning. she never has refused it. she doesn;t use sippies that much. i don;t know if she will be a sippy kind of kid. i think its normal. does she have formula through out the day? i say if they are not refusing all together no worries. just give her yogurt. or try some baby oatmeal with the formula mixed in. not that much but its still something. good luck
