  • Sorry about the previous answer some people on here are a little closed minded. I would suggest trying to add a little juice in her formula to change the taste a little and if that doesn't work my cousin recently had this problem and her doc had her change brands. The different flavor seemed to help. Other than that I am at a lost since I myself did breastfeed when possible, good luck sweetie.

  • Try adding a pinch of sugar or a drop or 2 of Karo syrup. Breastmilk is sweeter than formula and that is what the doctor told me to do when I was transitioning until my DD got used to the formula.

  • She may be transitioning and realizing that she likes being a big girl.... She still needs the nutrition from the formula. Maybe try another cup? Give it to her with a little something to change the flavor? Trial and error.... we all go through it!

  • The first poster needs to get a life and not post stuff anonymous!! I would try a different formula first and if that dont work maybe talk to your doctor about it. Good Luck!!

  • I'll be a little more soft then the first answer. I would stop the juice. At 6 months, they really don't need it. Your giving her a taste of something thats a hell of a lot better then formula. Wouldn't you stop drinking something nasty if you got a taste of something better? Just give her water, if you think she needs more fluids. And try the formula trick to get her back on it.
