My son will be 19 month old next week. His doctor now says he should be drinking no more than 16oz. of whole milk each day. Easy for him to say, my son is going to turn into a cow he drinks so much! I've been trying to cut back. The thing is he can go all day without any as long as we are busy, busy, busy. If he gets bored for one second he asks for it. At this point he is still drinking about 24-30oz. of milk a day (i know its a lot)...The other problem is the bottle. He wants it in a bottle not a cup. He drinks everything else from a cup but, milk must be in a bottle. Ive tried watering it down, Ive tried water in a bottle. He has an attachment to the bottle with milk in it...its his comforting thing. Any suggestions on how to cut back on both? Without having a screaming child for days?
