Bottle strike

So LO is BF and formula fed. Due to what the dr believes may be a milk allergy, she was placed on alimentum. Well, she hates the alimentum so much, that she is now refusing a bottle at all, no matter what is in it. She must associate it with the alimentum. Today I pumped and she drank a little (from my husband) but then refused and I had to come home to BF, LO will be going to daycare and will need to take a bottle. Any advice?


Re: Bottle strike

  • Are you feeding powder or ready to feed Alimentium? Maybe try the other?

  • We did all the formulas and BF with DS1 due to weight gain issues and cows milk issues. We ended up doing Nutramagen for awhile and switched to Gerber Good Start Soy. Maybe try one of those.

    FWIW DS1 spit up everything and we had to add rice cereal to everything and those worked best out of everything we tried. By 9 months he outgrew the issue.

  • Thanks for the advice. Hopefully we get over this protest soon! We have an appointment next week with the pedi & will definitely ask about switching formula!
