My super naughty 6 months old boy doesn't like his bottle.
He'd be crying and screaming bloody murder because he's hungry, but once we'd taken a few suckling out of his milk bottle (normally not even 1 oz), he'd be crying, kicking his legs in the air, throwing his head back, arms flailing everywhere, screaming bloody murder, refusing to drink his milk.
Some less than 6 months old babies, even some newborns with super healthy appetite can drink more than 5 oz (150ml) of milk already. But baby Marcus, unlike his parents (who has giant appetite), struggles to finish 5 oz. He drinks less and less. These days, it's a huge struggle to get him to drink even a mere 2 oz T_T
Mama and papa were at their wit's end.
Papa suggested that he might hate his new formula (which is 6 months up formula, baby Marcus is not a newborn anymore ^_^), I decided to test spoon feeding him his milk to see if the milk was the problem.
Clearly, it was not.
He happily "ate" his milk, my silly son...
He's started eating some solids, like congee + carrot + chicken or congee + hairy melon + cat fish which is then pureed to oblivion.
He might be bored of his milk and bottle. I could always add his formula and mix it into his congee, but he needs to liquid, especially right after his 6 months vaccination.
What else can I do, mommies?
PS. That's my Zara floral pants in the video. I learnt this "feeding pose" from SC's mom. My legs are on stand by in case baby Marcus plans to grab the bowl and pour congee all over the place.
