she only gets 2.5 bottles of formula  day

spoon fed 3 times

2 bottles of 4 oz juice

1 bottle water


I have been givng her finger foods for breakfast

she will not spoon feed anymore at all she refuses but doesn not eat much of her finger foods at all she throws them on the floor and will let me feed her. I do not know what to do. I even tried giving her a spoon to do it herself she just threw it on the floor(big mess).  I don't want her to go hungry and with her recent behavior I am stressing over it. She is def not a tiny baby but she is proportionate. I don't know how to feed her anymore bc she cannt onluy have bottles and I am trying but she won't let me and short of tying her down(which would be illegal) I can't feed her

She is most likely going through a phase.. if you take her to her doc all they are going to tell you is "she will eat when she is hungry" she isnt going to starve to death lol.. I'm going through the same thing you are w/ my 19 month old.. she refuses to sit and eat.. She took 2 bites of her spagetti then said "out mama" lol thats what she does when she is done lol.. I think its because she is cutting some back teeth plus she is just a hyper little thing lately!! GL and dont worry too much mama..everyone goes through it!

so should I just stay firm on the amount of bottles she gets a day?  and continue on and she will eat if she gets hungry enough. she in on a schedule.

Don't worry, she'll figure it out.  I wouldn't up her bottles or anything cuz that would just make her less hungry.  At that age we did a lot of finger foods.

my daughter did this around the same age, except i didnt give her quite that much juice. cut that out completely. just give her water.. maybe she is filling up on juice and not hungry. if not, she will eventually come around. it won't last. it seems like they would be starving.. but if they don't want to eat.. they must not be.. ya know?
