Tried all teats and beakers, most types of milk but no joy. Cries and spits it out. All she is having at moment id 3oz in morning and nothing else. I need some help.....

Has something changed? Was she previously taking the bottles happily? Is she filling herslef up on solids so that she can't fit in the milk? Sorry, so many questions but no answers as yet.

Nothing changed, she has never been a big milk drinking but now refuses it unless i get her up in middle of night and she dream feeds 3/4 oz. She isn't hungry as she is quite happy to go through night. Its me i am worried she isn't getting enough milk. I have put milk in her dinners but she spits it out and also if i make it too cheesey. Been going on now for 2 months.

Sorry no real advice here but my mum tells me after 5mths I wouldn't touch milk no matter how much she tried. She would try and get it in me other ways like custard and yogurts etc and I believe I took some vitamins but was a long time ago. Maybe you should speak to hv.

I was the same LoubieLou, am sure that we turned out ok
Agree on seeing health visitor to consider vitamins. Also yoghurts, cheese as a finger food etc. Some babies just don't like the taste once they discover food.
