wow it seems my lo is not the only one who hates milk,he is now 21 months and am still having problem finding the milk he will like apart from breastmilk. This is the reasonwhy am still breastfeeding because he will not take any milk,I've tried all the formula milks including the whole milk he would always spit it out and now am worried because think he is not getting enough milk coz he is only breastfed in the night. he is not interested to be breastfed daytime,but make sure give him other foods that contain calcuim in his diet just to make up.Hope to stop breastfeeding soon.

A baby will give off clues that he is getting hungry. Try to feed him before the last clue and then it wont he such a hassle. If you wait until the baby is very hungry he will get mad at how slow the milk is coming out of the bottle. Try a differnent bottle - you said that you have tried different teats but a different bottle might work. The type of bottle that you are using might have a strong air suction in it. Also - find one formula and try to change the form of the formula first - if you use powder - try concentrated or ready-to-feed. Depending on how the formula is made (concentrated, ready-to-feed, powder) varies on the chemical makeup of the ingredients. Sometimes sticking with the same formula just changing the way its made will solve a lot of problems. Also look for thrush in his mouth. This can be painful for the baby.

I'm going through the very same situation. My daughter is 22weeks and just hates milk. She was diagnosed with reflex at 6 weeks and was given ranitidine and gaviscon. It helped for a few weeks but than started again. started giving her solids at 16 weeks which she really likes but not milk. She will averagely have 15 ozs in 24hrs and most of it is forced. it's very upsetting and stressful for me. What am I doing wrong?

My son refused formula when he was 3months old, he's now 8months old and still no formula! I try to add it to his food but after two spoons i think he tastes the milk and stop swallowing. He loves water and hipp purees. I tried different formulas but no luck.

I did manage to get my son onto goats milk though

I am going through this atm I'm struggling to get 500-600mls a day into my daughter she's now 14 weeks but this has been an issue since 9weeks it's driving me batty my daughters not gaining much weight. I am presuming if yiur child's not taking any formula your giving him some kind of other fluid just wondering what your daily diet is. I'm off to see the gp again today so I am going to ask if we can start on some puréed food to get her gaining some weight
