We've been trying to transition our little guy over to milk and off formula, but we've run into a little hitch - He doesn't like the taste of milk. There's no allergy or anything involved, he just doesn't like it.

Anyone have any suggestions for alternatives to cow's milk that have the same benefits, but a better taste?

Thanks!

My kids are lactose intolerant so ive been through MANY diff types of milk! Goat milk, soy milk, lactose/soy free, you name it! The ONLY one my oldest will drink, and can drink without stomach troubles, is the Vanilla Almond milk. She likes the Silk Vanilla Soy but it still makes her tummy upset.

Thanks to both of you for your suggestions. I will give them a try. Unfortunately, he doesn't like any kind of milk - we've tried 1%, 2% and whole milk repeatedly. So will try some mixing :)

My kids just plain old don't like milk so we just added a little touch of vanilla flavor to her bottle and she loved it I slowly put less and less until she was drinking milk I never could get her to drink whole milk though she will drink 2% if it is the only choice if not she drinks water she is now 3

When we started our boys on milk, they both couldn't do whole right away. Try 2% and then work your way back up to milk. And/or, try doing half formula or breast milk and half regular milk, then working your way to all regular milk :D
