Refusing feedings

My almost 7 week son refuses his night time feeding several times a week. He is formula fed. He grunts so hard that he screams and cries and is unable to drink a bottle. I've changed formulas and it hasn't gone away. Any ideas what it could be?

I'm not sure I never had that issue. Here's a bump.

I would assume if a baby is refusing to eat, the baby isn't hungry.
I've only every fed my children on demand, not via a schedule. Good luck.

Maybe he just wasn't hungry. How often is he eating how often

He eats 4 oz every 3-4 hours. He acts pretty hysterical. When he cries, I take the bottle away, and he cries until I put it back and latches to it really aggressively like he's starving. I assume if he wasn't hungry, he wouldn't take it.

He could be teething. I know it's early but the bottle may simply not feel so good.

Maybe gas? He wants it's but it's hurting to take it? Try some belly drops. It couldn't hurt
