    I am not sure of giving Nesquik for a 9 month old!! Infact I am hearing this for the first time!!

    Did you introduce him to Enfamil just now? If yes, then once babies cross 3-4 months then they won't usually like the taste of formula Have you tried other formulas? Similac, Goodstart etc? And I believe Enfamil is supposed to be the most horrible tasting of all the formulas. Fortunately my DS doesn't complain with Enfamil :)

    BTW, you can find Nesquik in Walmart. BUt beware, Nesquik contains added sugars.

    I wouldn't recommend adding chocolate/strawberry flavor at such a young age. Like MriduSudha suggested, try switching formula brands to see if that would help. When I started supplementing for my baby he wasn't a big fan of formula but soon learnt to tolerate it. I had to change from Enfamil to Similac and he was ok with that.

    Hi Charmingpooh,

    I second previous replies from our friends, i even personally feel its too early for kid to flavour the milk.

    If you have started just few days back, try for 3-4 days orelse better change the brand and see if she likes that.

    Because in my case my daughter didn;t like Similac, i was totally helpless, then as per my sister's suggestion i changed to Enfamil, she got well with that.

    Happy Parenting.

    Ditto others poornima. If your baby does not like formula on its own, you can try adding it in foods - cereal, cooked purees, puddings
