So my DS(10 months) had a cold at the weekend. Now just a snotty nose (sorry if TMI) seems to be left from that but he seems to be off his bottle. He has only taken maybe just over 150ml all day. He ate half his porridge for breakfast, refused his fruit and maybe 30ml of his bottle. Lunchtime I managed to entice him to eat some fish pie with bread and then a small yoghurt. Refused bottle throughout. Dinner time he ate his full dinner but again refused bottle. Now refused bottle at bedtime. He opens his mouth to take it like he really wants it then starts crying and batting it away. What am I doing wrong? I have been giving him water as his nappies are obviously not as wet as normal. He is normally a great eater. I initially though he was just being fussy but it seems like more...any advice?
It’s not unusual for them to go off their bottles if their nose is blocked as they are used to drinking the bottle and breathing through their nose so not being able to breathe through a blocked nose may scare him.
You got a plug in for his room?
111 he is getting dehydrated, which needs attention.
Can you try milk in a cup? Calpol 30min before milk feed?
Thank you for replies! He actually took his bottle before bed...a suck of the dummy between every mouthful so it took a while but so relieved.
