My 4 month all of a sudden decided he no longer wants to eat from the bottle? He will take the pacifier but screams when the bottle comes near him?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Be patient

For most 4 months olds, milk remains the main diet as weaning should wait after 6 months to avoid development of allergies etc.
If your child is refusing bottle, you should try to rule out other reasons for his refusal to eat. Change the bottle and nipple, and give water , and check temperature. If still refusing to eat beyond a couple of days, check with the baby's pediatrician.

In brief: More info needed

Is he breastfeeding? Did you start baby foods.
How long has this been going on? Is his activity level normal? Has he been sick with a cold?
