Playing around with the bottle Rss

I am having trouble with bottle feeding my 5 month old son. He has always been bottle fed, but within the last few weeks has decided that it is fun to play with the bottle rather then drink the bottle. It sometimes can be a real mission to get him to drink the 180ml of milk. I have just started to properly feed him at lunch time his solids which he will eat no problems. Does anyone else have this problem??? It seems he has had enough of his milk.

Deena,
My daughter did teh same thing. Don't worry if he doesn't drink the whole bottle at once. Madison drank a little before her food, a little bit after her food and then the rest before she had her nap.

You can also try just giving him water and saving his bottle till nap time.
My daughter has been playing with her bottle for the last few weeks also, and it takes her ages to drink it because she just wants to pull it out of her mouth and look at it and then she puts it back in only to just suckle at it without taking any milk.

I am just letting her have her way at the moment. I just take the bottle off her for a while and then when she is hungry she grabs it back again. I think they must all go through this stage. The darlings smile
I think this is the 5 month old bottle fed baby curse. My boy has slowly coming out of it now but they are doing some very strange things at 5 months! He wont keep still wants to suck and bite everything, grizzles straight after a bottle I put him to bed wont sleep. He might be getting his teeth I think.
