She was 'finally' completely weaned @15 mos. Baby Venice is sooo cute. She asked me this morning "Mommy, I like juice psss!". She is smart :). -a very good drinker of water & juice but she doesn't like dairy milk. I've tried dairy milk in d sippy cup & a bottle and she lets it run out her lips and dribble down her chin. Then refuses to drink any more. It's crazy! Any recommendations on how to get a picky drinker to take some milk? She's just a little peanut and I really want her to get the fat from dairy. She's not even a fan of cheese or yogurt. Any advice is welcome ツ

My daughter loves "pink milk" we put just a little strawberry or chocolate sauce in it, just enough to change the flavor a little.

My daughter did the same thing when I took her off of a bottle. I had to add a little strawberry syrup to the milk and she drank it just fine! Not a lot just enough to give it a little flavor!

Ros my pediatrician said to stay away from the cheeses as a calcium supplement because all cheeses are all processed and really worse for them then any nutritional value.

My daughter was the same, very frustrating since her older brother was a really good eater and drinker. I fully weaned her at 14 months, and she wouldnt take dairy milk either. Only drinks water.
We have just kept offering her milk with meals, and making sure she has plenty of cheese and yoghurt for snacks. She has just turned 22 months and has started to drink a little milk to our surprise!
Would say just try to be relaxed about it if she is getting calcium from other sources. Keep offering it - one day she might surprise you!

Try Almond milk or goats milk they are much better for her and Im sure she will enjoy them. Cow milk might make her belly hurt that's why she doesn't like it!

She doesn't need milk. My youngest has never drank milk a day in his life. His pediatrician just said to make sure he gets enough other dairy yogurt, cottage cheese etc. plus a multivitamin daily.
