    milk refusal -- would change of formula help?

    my 9-month old LO is rejecting milk recently. am wondering whether anybody has solved (at least partially) a similar problem by changing to a different brand of formula, or is formula change generally not helpful in this kind of situation. LO has been on similac for months; i'm thinking of trying another brand but would like to hear people's experience first.

    thanks a lot!

    Changing formula didnt help with mine. She just refused every milk. What a waste. Then I tried to give it to her while she is asleep. She finished the whole bottle. When She is older, I changed to a pretty training cup that she likes a lot.

    Hope this help.

    my 9-month old refused milk too....for 2 of her feeds ona single day....i felt awful and tried to make up for it by putting in his favourite biscuits and feeding him with a spoon,,,,he lapped up most of it....the rest i tried feeding him with a colouful cup...again it worked....i don;t think formula change would help.....could be just a one-off u never know....but i think it stems from boredum....so try these things or try taking him down in the stroller just for a change of environment and then feed him...u could also add the 'leftover' formula to his cereal instead of water...........all the best!!
