Breastfed 3 month old suddenly refusing bottles?? Later Gator. 1 child; Chicago, IL, United States 9029 posts1st May
Ds is almost 3 months old and just starting to hate the bottle. He's been using one since like 5 days old but all of a sudden refusing it until he's basically starving. He only gets one while I'm at work about 4 times a week bit in 3 months he hasn't had a problem. I don't know what to do. I don't want him to starve himself. We've tried Dr. Browns, similac, regular, and playtex ventaire bit couldnt use them because they made his reflux bad, now he's on nuk and its gotten a lot better but now after like a month he hates them.

He's been with fil since 1 30 and has only eaten two ounces, its now 7pm. Thats not Luke him at all. He's a huge piggy.

Some BF babies just dont like bottles. They will eat only what they absolutely have to and wait for b**bs to be back then just cluster feed.

my DD refused bottles from 4 months on. thankfully she didn't need to use them since i stay home, so we just quit trying after a while. my pedi said a baby won't starve themselves, so he will probably cluster feed when he's with you to make up for the lack of eating during the day. i think with consistency he will start to take them again!
