My son is still breastfed. But, he drinks a little out of a sippy cup. But again, he will only drink water and tot juice. He despised whole milk. What's the next best thing???

My daughter is 16 months and still doesn't really like whole milk. I finally caved and we flavor her milk now. I use half to a third of the amount of flavoring the package says to use and she takes her milk just fine after that. My mom had the same problem with my brother up until his third birthday.

I meant will first try adding sugar to the whole milk, and if that doesn't work, I'll try adding my milk to the whole milk.... It was a long night.

Thanks ladies! My son is 15 months old. I will first try adding sugar to the breast milk, and if that doesn't work, I will try adding my milk to the breast milk. For some reason, his doctor says he NEEDS whole milk. Go figure, if it wasn't for the doctor, I wouldn't worry about it. He only likes water and tot juice. I hope to wing him when the weather warms up. I am not looking forward to it. Thanks for your suggestions! May love, peace and blessings be with you all!

Maybe you could try mixing breastmilk with whole milk at first, to get him used to it?

i'm pretty sure you could still get a way with breastfeeding if you still want to
or if you decide to a lot of formula brands make toddler/growing up milk ..
my son is 1 next thursday and i have the same problem so we've put him on the toddler milk and he loves it!

We who live in South Africa give a tea called Rooibos. Its from a bush found here and its also being used for children that are lactos intolarent. You should be able to find it in South African stores in some counries. You make it black with a teaspoon of suger and give it to them warm or cold. Makes a great ice tea and is said to help produce breastmilk. Also good for a bunch of other things.

How old is your baby? shouldn't really be drinking whole milk as it's not too good for his digestive system... But, if you're giving him small drinks as a taste, and this is not his milk source then I recommend this...



Add one teaspoon of sugar - works a treat, as cows milk is quite bitter compared to breast milk. and 1 tspn is not too much sugar, so don't worry about that
