Answer: Hi There, its quite common for bubs to go off all or part of their usual routine. There can be lots of reasons from teething to `fussy times`. Most will come back around within 1-2 weeks, but in the meantime, offer baby formula before solids, if he refuses, wait and then offer him his solids. This way you set up the best possible opportunity for him to take formula first and not fill up on solids alone. Ensure he is also having lots of opportunities to to drink water. If you find things don`t improve pop into see your CHN or GP for some more advice. All the best, Leanne
