I switched bottles and he started to do great but this past couple weeks it's been getting worse gradually. Well, today he only took 1 oZ!!!! Lucky we have cereal but he can't get all his formula in cereal. He SCREAMS!!!. I am calm btw when I offer it and he will slap the bottle and throw a a huge fit. He used to feed himself his bottle but then stopped doing that. He wanted to play with it. I can't get a good amount for him in a sippy. My son throws tantrums really bad over the bottle and it is so frustrating(even when he has already burped and is not gassy or anything). He has no alergies to the formula btw....he just does not want it and when he does not want something that is how ist's gonnna be. I feel like such a horrible mom right now. He is almost 8 months.
I know being a mom is different but I have never had this problem with other babies. They took their bottle and no problems.
There is always a reason he wont' take it: He is too tired. He is too excited. I hear moms who have babies who take their bottles easily and I feel like the crappy mom. I try but I cannot FORCE the bottle especially with his mouth wide open and throwing a huge fit like he does.Answer Question
