Hi mummies... My bub seems to be on a milk strike (fm) for d longest time (since 4 month +) n he is currently 6 month+ ...even if I drag d feeding hours (5 hours ) he will drink fast initially then refuse (usually left 1/2 bott of 120ml)... We hv no choice but to dream feed him every time( tt is d only time he will drink w/o fussing )...only started weaning (rice cereal) few days ago n he is still learning how to feed on tt... I hv check if bub teething or etc tt cause this milk strike but he is not...is this normal?

Hi, You can introduce curd/yogurt to him. He may not be liking the taste of the milk. You can consider changing the milk brand. May be another milk brand do the trick. Also, since he is 6 months now, start giving him solids and calcium rich foods so that even if he is not drinking enough milk, his calcium needs are met. But make sure all the foods that you are giving the baby are nicely mashed and minced so that the baby can swallow it easily.
