asha chaudhry Thanks for the tag.
Tamisra Bhattacharya Hai Dear..  Baby refusing milk sometimes is normal. If baby is teething then it refuses milk. Smell the feeding bottle please .. if the bottle have some other odour.. then also baby won't like to feed. Change the bottle. And check for the flow in the bottle. I feel, weight is fine. As asha said, trying feeding in spoon.

don't worry  first  a fall half bottle boil water and half bottle milk and add sugar half tea spoon and after cold it gave him he have to drink it

Sheeba Vijesh

thanks for the tag asha chaudhry. tamisra, baby's weight seems fine. and everything said by Roopashree Siddireddy, i agree with them. sometimes nipple flow maybe too less for baby, as baby may have grown and requires more flow. try vati and spoon, which is healthier for baby. if you have been breastfeeding him and now offering formula, maybe he does not like the taste. Aksh Patel it is not advisable to give baby sugar before 1 year ☺...

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello...
as Sheeba Vijesh and Roopashree Siddireddy said check bottle...better to feed using bowl n spoon..even this is written on formula wrapler too..
and baby's weight is good..dnt worry..sometimes it depend on baby's mood too..they want changes..
thanx fa tag asha chaudhry
