I just want to know how much milk are your babies taking now.... my 16 months old baby is not a big fan of milk, in a good day he takes 18-20oz (3 bottles), but almost every day he just takes 14-15oz (2 bottles)... is that enough??

As long as he's getting calcium from other forms then he'll be great :-)
Our little man only has about 250ml of milk (8-9 oz) to drink throughout the day. But he does have a small tub of yoghurt, a cube of cheese, and milk in his cereal.
I believe the recommended calcium is about 500mg for this age, with my guys diet he gets about 700mg a day.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

My doctor told me no more than 20 ounces a day. My daughter was drinking too much of it and it was causing her problems. She is now drinking water or juice mixed with water most of the time.

Doctor told us he needs at least 18oz a day to get all the calcium he needs. Also, we don't drink cows milk (it's disgusting) so we do Almond milk and he loves it.

Thanks you all.... and with these quantities of milk, are your babies ok in weight and size? In his 16 months check my son was 27lb and 81cm...

my daughter hates milk. I talked to the dr about it. He said as long as she is getting a lot of other calcium from cheese and yogurt etc. it's okay if she only has a cup a day or 2. her sups are about 250ml,

When I took my LO in for his 1 yr check up the doctor said that a 1yr old should have between 8-16oz a day. My LO has about 8-13oz

I have no idea since we're nursing, but she nurses about 7-8 times. I've read that babies her age eat about 10-19 oz a day; I think she drinks more than that.

Thanks Sharon!!
I also give him all dairy I can: yogurt (2-3 small tubs a day), cheese, probiotic drinks, etc... he doesn't like cereal, but I think it's ok... well, I hope it's ok... kisses!
