My one daughter didn't like milk either. We tried ever flavoring on the market.. nothing. She didn't eat cereal either so that was a no go. Truth is she had so much other dairy it really didn't matter too much. We still gave her calcium chews (they taste like tootsie rolls but much softer) She ate those. Fast forward 18 months, she started drinking milk. She loves it, but she wants it warmed. Which I am fine with. Can't get her to drink much else some days lol. So even if she doesn't want it not doesn't mean she won't later on.

My kids did not take formula. I stopped nursing my oldest son at 14 months. I tried for over a month to give him cow milk but he refused it. Then I added nesquik to it. I tried the one with less sugar in it. I had no choice. But the doctor kept telling me it is ok he can get his calcuim from other sources such as yogurt,...My youngest son takes the milk only with cheerios.

Hi Angela,
Thank you. I actually tried to give her Fresh milk but she doesn't like it. So no luck on that as well.
They happen to have their own way at times.

Hi Jayne,
Thanks for your reply... I already did that and the doctor have put her on another formula which is the same story. But she asked me to give it to her with her cereals throughout the day.
But my main concern is in d nights before she sleeps and in d middle of the night sometimes she wakes up for milk. But she doesn't drink the formula. She just sleeps again.
