My 10 mths old baby girl suddenly refused her bottle of formula. It started this week. She would normally have 5 feedings of 4-5 oz daily and she eats solid twice a day. She has always been petite and only weighs 15.5 lbs (she is in the 5th percentile). Since wednesday she started refusing the bottle, pushing the bottle away. We cant even get her to open her mouth. For the last 4 days she drank only 4 oz per day. I tried to give her the milk in the sippy cup but she refuses. I am giving spoons of water throughout the day so that she does not get dehydrated. we bought pedialytes as well. we called the doctor too. she is acting normal, and does not look sick at all. she will accept her solid food. she drinks similac alimentum as she is lactose intolerant..but i just started giving her yogurt yesterday because she is not drinking anything and she did not have adverse reaction to the yogurt. i tried putting baby orajel on her gums but it did not help at all..she had 2 teeth at the bottom..i don't know if it is teething but it seems to be going on forever and i am so stressed out by this..most of all i am concerned she will get dehydrated. please let me know if you have encountered the same problems and what did you do? thank you.
