I am actually having this issue right now . I think it is because his front top teeth are coming in . He also was sick with a stomach bug last week and is still not eating as much as normal . He is using a sippy cup so I have tried that , its a really good way if they wont take a bottle and you can put breast milk or formula in it .


Try some different bottles and find one that your baby prefers. If your baby is refusing all bottles you can try using s spoon and putting it to your baby's lips and slowly pouring it in your baby's mouth. You can also try using a syringe and put drips of milk in your baby's mouth. Keep trying and don't give up.
