He's my first born. His diet starts (or should I'd say started with) 8oz. of milk. Then in between I feed him solids 3 times, sometimes my homemade fresh food (boiled and mashed), and sometimes gerber food along with one cup of flavored yogurt. And then ending with another bottle of 8oz. milk right before he goes to bed.
Okay now since past couple of weeks he has been troubling me. Especially in drinking milk. In the morning he'll take 8 ounces since he's sleepy. But at the last bottle he wont take more then 4 ounces, 6 if I'm lucky. during the day he won't let the bottle anywhere near him!
Tonight was just too much, he took the bottle in his mouth (without a problem) but then spat it out almost instantly. It was freshly made so it couldn't have gone bad. I even double checked the expiration date. I normally give him enfamil, but I have Simalic as backup too. He's a baby, I can't force food down this throat. Frustrated my husband tried stuffing the bottle (jokingly of course) in this mouth, but he had his mouth shut tightly and kept strugglingly out of my husband's grip. In desperation my DH gave up and told me to just put him to bed.
His last solid feed was at 8pm. Since he's skipping his milk feed so he'll be hungry throughout the night. I feel so bad, but what else should I do?? He wouldn't take solids either, any advice please. He's not underweight, but he's on the lower side
