dd refusing to take bottle from dp - help!

dd is 9 months old - for the past week she has been completely refusing to drink any milk or eat any food when dp tried to feed her, she just screams and screams until i take over and then she drinks the whole bottle.

she has been a bit off colour lately, but apart from that nothing has changed - dp looks after her during the day while i work and i lookafter her at night while he works, so its not too bad if i am there then i can take over but im not there 25% of the time and therefore she is just not eating!

any suggestions/experience of this?

we went through this a couple of weeks ago but we think its because dd was teething and had a bit of a cold.

she was generally quite clingy tho, so it wasnt just about feeds - she would scream the place down when i went out of sight.

sorry, i'm not much help!
