How many ounces of whole milk do you kids have a day?

When we first transitioned at 12 months she was getting five sippys ... between 28-32, not always finishing all. I asked the doc and he told me as long as she's eating her foods it was okay. Over the past month and a half we have replaced two sippys with water (occasionally she gets juice at day care). Now she gets a sippy of whole milk shortly after waking up, one at lunch and one at dinner (we've been splitting this one between dinner and bed but she is starting not to need it at bed time). SO we are now closer to 24 ounces which is what our ped. recommends when parents ask how much to give.

My son drinks what I think is a lot of milk. We tell him that we will have to get him his own cow! I used to worry he drank too little when he was on formula but he loves milk. He drinks 3 bottles of milk a day, usually about 24 ounces or more.
