My son is two years old, and I have stopped breastfeeding him. I’m trying to give him formula from a bottle, but he is not taking it. What do I do?


First, ensure his mouth is healthy. Make sure nothing is hurting him. At two years old, he can also take a cup. Try a bit of juice to see if he will drink from that. It’s really important he gets fluids, so if he’s not drinking, he needs to go the pediatrician immediately.
