10m refusing bottle

Anonymous

Hi everyone! My 10m old daughter has been refusing to drink breast milk from the bottle with our nanny during the day all this week. This happened out of the blue starting Monday. She nurses with me fine just no bottle. We tried using a sippy cup but still no luck! Im hoping this is a phase but she needs to go back to drinking milk! She has been eating solids and there are normal pee/poop diapers during the day. And she nurses with me with no fuss, at least 3 times a day. Any advice or anyone experience this? Thanks :)

    She could be naturally dropping a feeding.

    If you just want her to have the milk for the nutrition, then have the nanny mix it in her food.

    my 10mo has decreased himself off of formula, he would rather have food. we just went to the pediatrician a week ago.. it's normal for her to not want it. my son refuses to eat for anyone but me. is this the same nanny she is used to?

    Thanks! I didnt realize she could drop feedings. We can try to give her milk mixed in meals.

    It could be a nursing strike change of routine or anything really can make them do that also as a child gets older she could be refusing milk and wanting more solids. Kind of a form of weaning it's not uncommon for them to do this
