    our baby wont drink formula anymore

    our baby from birth had taken formula and breast side by side......

    But just recently he stopped drinking formula. Before he'd just leave the teet in his mouth when the bottle had formula in..... then it changed to playing with the teet rolling it around his mouth..... then the teet wouldnt even go anywhere near his mouth cause he'd stick his tongue in the way..... then just recently he'd started to spit the formula milk out.

    Im assuming he's prefering the breast milk more cause he'd suck away and happily let me nurse him.

    Any ideas how i can get him to drink the formula as well? Any tips?

    The obvious answer i know what some will say will be stop nursing him with breast milk

    Have you tried changing formula? I have a similar issue, been giving expressed breast milk and formula for 2 months then completely switched to only breast milk. My baby won't drink formula anymore will only spit it out I was using Cow & Gate peptic junior but when i gave him Emfamil A+ he would eat it.

    We had the same problem with my daughter when she's younger, not sure why but she didn't like the milk we initially started her off with.

    Tried using a different milk formula and she's okay after that. Should be fine to switch. It's better than her nothing having any at all.
