There must be some reason for your baby to drink so little formula. She may be feeling full so it is important to give her formula before her solid food. Another possibility may be a technical reason such as the kind of teat on her bottle or the size of the hole in the teat.

i have given her bottle before her food and she is still not interested. There is no bottle that she is interested in. And i have changed her teat to the larger one suitable for 6-24 months old. If she was feeling full fair enough but shouldnt she want her morning bottle then?is changing her formula an option and will it maybe make a diffrence to this matter? I know docs are no normally very keen to change formulas but at this point i will try anything. And i tried the sippy cup that a lady advised yesterday and she was just as uninterested no diffrence what so ever.

I am concerned about your baby drinking so little. You have obviously tried everything to help her.I have nothing against you trying another formula. Many babies of this age like the yoghurty taste of NAN Pelargon. It is certainly worth a try.
