My son is 7 months old and breastfed.Refuses to take a bottle no matter what is in it. He has an upper respitory cold currently. Today he is spending the day with his father. Normally he is there for about 5 to 6 hours. But today they are keeping him about 10. I'm worried about his milk intake. He usually has milk between lunch and dinner but sometimes he just wants milk. He does eat baby food 3 times a day but since he is sick he doesn't really want any. Will he be okay going 10 hours with no milk? His pediatrician said he needs 12 t0 22 ounces a day. I can't get his father or grandmother to understand that he needs his milk. I think they are thinking that making him drink a sip of juice is enough. With him sick like he is doesn't he need the milk even more now? Should I be worried at all or calling his father to hash this out?Answer Question
