  • Not sure what you are asking. Are you saying your baby is sleeping alot and not taking a bottle? Call your doctor.

  • I'm not sure what you are asking either. Are they drinking more oz but less often? That's normal. And sleeping longer stretches? Normal too. But if they aren't eating at all, or very little, and it's been days take them to the doctor.

  • Off his bottle as in not drinking at all? Or just drinking less but still having a good amount of wet/dirty diapers?
    Sleeping a lot could be a sign of a growth spurt, but usually that goes hand-in-hand with eating more. Maybe you should give your doctor a call just to check.

  • I'm not sure what your question is here, He's off the bottle, meaning he doesn't use his bottle anymore, and sleeping alot, SInce I'm not sure about your question. I would send a refrazing of your question for us. Thanks,

  • My daughter went off her bottle at nine months, she also quit drinking her formula and went to regular milk. Also by nine months she was sleeping through the night so it could just be that your baby is going to be ahead in this area.
