My DD has been rufusing her bottle the last 4 days, She will eat solid food but spits out her milk when i try. Up until now she has been really good with feeding and we had a routine:

7.30 Milk
11.00 Milk
1.00 Lunch
3.30 Milk
4.30 Yoghurt
7.00 Milk

Each milk feed she would normall take about 5/6 oz. But last few days she is hardly taken anything i'm lucky if i get 2oz in her, but she laps up her kunch and the yoghurt. She has slept through since 9 weeks old and now has had to spend last 3 nights being cuddle or she won't settle. I use SMA Gold and Advent bottles. She is also drink anything up to 12oz of water a day.

Please help..

jess did this - cut back the solids. Give them in the morning and fill her up on bottles afternoon and evenings. HTH
