My son is 20 months old and refuses to drink milk from a sippy cup. I took away his bottles cold turkey, and we are on day 5 and he still wont drink. He has no problem drinking water from a sippy though. I don't want to dehydrate him so I am letting him drink lots of water, and I'm supplementing with yogurt & cheese as much as I can. I have tried doing this twice in the past, and both times I gave in after 2-3 days and gave his bottle back. I have also tried to enforce a sippy cup just for lunch for the past few weeks, and that hasn't worked so I think cold turkey is the only way to go with his personality. I just wonder how much longer this will go on, and what if he just decides to stop drinking milk?? Can anyone share your experiences with this and how long it took?
