6.5 month old refusing bottle

my dd is 6.5 months old and the past few days she has been refusing a bottle.   She only wants to eat jar food and cereal.  So far today it is now 2 pm and she has only had 6 oz of formula.  I thought it was her teething but then she stills sucks on her paci.  She LOVES the jar food and cereal mix.  SHe will cry and cry but then as soon as she sees the bowl she stops and is all happy.  I just don't know what to do with her not wanting her bottle.. Any suggestions.?

Wes went through this, around the same age (he's 11 months now). All I can offer is to keep trying, they really do still need formula/breastmilk as the biggest part of their diet at that age. He eventually went back to taking the bottles like he usually did, so it didn't last long! Good luck!
