7 month old baby will not eat solids. She drinks approximately 16 oz of formula milk a day but refuses solids. Should I reduce her milk intake?

The AAP recommends for you to continue with breast milk in addition to solids until at least 1 year old. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Baby is 8 months biting mother when nursing but keeps refusing bottle . Baby is underweight(10 percentile) best way to wean a baby who will not take a bottle but needs nutrition ?
Work with the doctor: A normal baby at 8 months can easily be trained to take a bottle, if "no breasts are available" to the baby.

In such cases, the parents have to see the doctor a few times and work together to keep the baby growing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My baby brother is 3 weeks old and refusing breast milk, is it okay to start using baby formula in a bottle?
INFANT FEEDING: I see mom is taking propranolol, carbamezipine and propylthiouracil. All these are l-2 drugs, means she can breastfeed without adverse effects to the baby. If baby refuses to nurse, mom can pump the milk with breast pump and feed baby in the bottle. If enough milk is not there, she can supplement with formula after breast milk. Best advise: talk to the pediatrician. ...Read more

Mixed feedings: I congratulate you on choosing to breastfeed your baby. There is no harm in your plan to give baby one formula feeding at night. Dad can feed him and bond with him too. Formula feeding will come in handy when the time comes that you cannot breastfeed e.g., taking off for several hours and more importantly, in the presence of infection or having to take medication that might harm the baby. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
