My daughter will not take whole milk. With my son all I did was take his bottle filled with fromula away and hand him a sippy cup of milk, and he loved it. But my daughter wants nothing to do with it. I need tips and ideas to get her switched over.

Try mixing them. For a few days do 3/4 formula and 1/4 milk. Once he's used to that go to 1/2 formula, 1/2 milk. After a few more days go to 1/4 formula and 3/4 milk. After a few more days switch to all milk. If ever he has a problem switching to the next step just go back to the last one for a few more days.

Your child doesn't need milk. My youngest son has hated milk always. He is now 4 and has never drank milk. His pediatrician says as long as he gets enough dairy, and vitamin D from other foods he is fine. They also said to give him a multivitamin.

my boy wasn't keen on whole milk, how old is she? I tried adding a tiny bit of milkshake mix to give it a little flavour. or if she's too young for that, try it in a bottle 1st then show her that it goes in a sippy cup then she drinks it. show her how to use it and tell her it's for big girls and bottles are of babies x

Have you tried mixing the two? Mostly formula and a little milk ant then gradually increasing the amount of milk?
