10 month old refusing bottle?

 Hello Ladies,

Just a quick question....  My DS is 10 months old and has been taking a bottle since he was born.  When he is with me he nurses but at daycare or with Dad he gets BM in bottles.  He has never had any problem with this.

Last week at daycare he started only taking 1-2 oz per bottle.  Ok no big deal.  He is still nursing like a champ.  This weekend while I was out he refused the bottle completely for Dad.  So far this week he is still only drinking a few oz for his teachers. 

He loves his table food and is eating three meals and a snack per day.  He does not understand how to use a sippy yet.   And of course is still nursing great.  What should his diaper count be per day?  Is this normal?  Guess I am just looking for some reassurance.  Thanks

It's normal. You're wanting to see 4-5 diapers a day. If you aren't getting that many I would cut back on solids and encourage more nursing.

 Thank you!  That is what I thought but just wanted to check with the experts.  We are getting about 6 dirty diapers a day and that is not counting the poopy ones as two.  Guess we are doing good!
