5 month old rejecting bottle its_jay 2 kids; Kansas 163 posts

My daughter will be five months in just four days, lately she has been rejecting her bottle when its time to feed her. I'm not sure if its teething, or if she wants something other than milk, but its really starting to become more frustrating. Maybe like once or twice she will drink her milk just fine, but all the other times she isn't happy about her feeding times. And she does seem as if she's hungry, she will start to act like it every four hrs and yet like I said still pushes bottle away, moves her face and fusses. Pls help and thanks in advance.

Maybe not hungry. My baby did that at times around that age I thought she might have heart burn or a tummy ache or just full.

I don't know what else to say other than just use discipline. Make sure that no matter how hard she cries that she doesn't get her favorite food every meal of the day. This has always worked for me; it definitely takes some patience and some frustration to go through, but overall you will be happier and so will she! Best of luck!

She sounds like she's teething. Let her chew on a frozen teething ring to reduce gum swelling & relieve her pain. Then feed her

The baby is 5 months old so she probably doesn't get anything but formula or breastmilk. Disciplining a baby won't fix this problem

Ummmmm....the word discipline never should come into play with a 5 MONTH old.
