Our little guy will be 9 months in a week or so and for the past 3 weeks, it's been quite a struggle to get him to drink breastmilk out of a bottle at daycare. He has been on solids since 6 months and eats like a champ. No lie. This kid acts like a vacuum and does well with eating table foods. He has his bottom two teeth and periodically seems like he is teething (top two teeth), but we can't see anything yet, nor do they really seem to be bothering him too much. He has had a cold for a few weeks, so some days is more congested than others, but there doesn't really seem to be any correlation to him being stuffy and not taking a bottle.

He has been averaging maybe 8 oz of milk during daycare, when he used to take 16oz. Today, she's only been able to get him to take 3oz. I have one sippy that we've tried (and she is trying to use too), but hasn't been a huge success.

Any ideas of what to do? I know that food before one is only for fun, so that's why I'm somewhat concerned. I will say that he nurses perfectly when we are home, so I don't think that it's an ear infection. There is no pulling at his ears or issues with laying down. I guess that I'm pulling at straws regarding what to try next.
