Hi all. My LO has been doing something very strange lately. She turned 6 months old today and over the past three days she has refused a bottle. She was bottle fed pumped milk and some formula for the first 3-4 weeks of her life because she refused to latch (it was quite the journey). Then suddenly one day she did and we've done a combination of bottle and breast feeding ever since, mostly bottle during the day and breast at night. She's a shrimpy little thing--26-27" and I'm guessing around 14-15lbs, but tons of wet diapers and usually one poop every day or every other day. So pushing calories has been a thing, but she's hitting milestones and generally a very happy baby. She never preferred one bottle over the other and was super easy about going back and forth. She's never been a great nurser, but we get by.
Now, all of a sudden, the bottle is no good. Boob only. She refuses a bottle from me and her dad, even if I'm not home. She took a few from daycare today, but I didn't pick her up so I didn't get the details. What is going on? I worry that she's not getting enough calories this way bc I'm not nursing her a lot when we're both home during the week (we're usually both sleeping). We've only sort of introduced solids on the weekends, which she LOVES.
Why the sudden regression? Anyone else have this issue? Any insight appreciated!
