Hey, my lil boy is 6months and ive not started weaning him properly yet (lil bits here and there) but now he only takes half his milk, hes still wantin fed every 4/5 hours but only taking half. Is it cause hes wanting food now? He just refuses to take the last of his bottle unless its his first morning feed normally

So he's bottle fed? Sometimes they have an off day (usually teething) and refuse milk, or he might be a bit under the weather with a bug. How is he otherwise? Has he been having any solids?

I remember this happening with all of mine at some point, it was too soon to stop the milk so I just kept on offering it and eventually they got back to normal again.

DS refused to drink milk in any form at 5 months old, and that continued until he was in his 20's. I just made sure he had plenty of other dairy products and it certainly didn't do him any harm - he's a triathlete and extremely healthy.

Should i just continue offering him it and just give him what he wants? What can i give him to make up for the loss of milk
