Q.

5 months refusing formula

Hi

My five months son who is staying with my mom miles away is refusing formula, we started him on Nan1, now we changed to Nan2 thinking that maybe he does not want NAN 1 anymore,but no luck. he still refuses, we give him cereal once a day and some water. I can not imagine him stopping the formula at this stage. Please help.

Thank you

This is a very big problem. At his age the formula is far more important than solids so do not give him any solids or water unless he has taken his formula so never give this before the formula.You may have to try him on another formula such as Lactogen to see if he will take it.
