My daughter is 14 months old, and she will not drink any kind of milk.

[deleted account] ( 8 moms have responded )

I am nursing her, but am drying up. I tried since she was 10 months old to wean her, but she wouldn't take any other kind of milk. I even tried giving her breast milk out of her sippy cup, and she wouldn't take that either. Will she eventually take it when she knows I'm not producing anymore, or what are some tips? I tried soy milk, almond milk, strawberry milk, chocolate milk. She doesn't even really love yogurt to make up for some calcium intake. Help!!

My son was the same he really didn't like milk so my mother suggested some flavour in the milk either 1/2 a teaspoon of choc powder or maybe a natural flavour of some sort.. honey, fresh strawberries in the blender, mango, bananas just a process of elimination i guess try to find what she likes the best....see how you go.. best of luck

Thanks Terry, I will try watering down milk. I did try giving her pumped milk out of the sippy cup, and she wouldn't take that either. I think she thinks milk should only come from me or something. And thank you Rachel, I will check it out and let you know how it goes!!

Does she eat cheese? My stepsister's daughter is the same way, she's also picky about lots of other foods too, so they were concerned about her weight and nutrition altogether. If she likes cheese, there are lots of fun choices, shapes, sticks, etc. that she might like. She can eat grilled cheese sandwiches as well. Maybe try milk on her cereal if she likes that or on flavored oatmeal. Milkshakes are a great way to get her calcium too, especially if you don't want to give her straight ice cream. I actually "googled" 'foods with calcium' for you and here's the link to the first article:

I think it will be very helpful. It includes non dairy foods with calcium and other suggestions. Good luck! Hope those suggestions help. Let me know, I am interested to hear.

if she will drink water you can dilute the milk in it she proberly just hates the taste of real milk and when watered down it tastes and feels like breast milk

Thanks, yeah she hates bottles. Wouldn't take them from around 9 months old. I tried soy milk, but she will only have a sip or two.

You can give her breast milk in the bottle first using soft nipples are that more natural. Try the nipples from Similac.com, they resemble a mother's natural nipples. When my daughter was about 4 months old, I changed from nursing to pumping, and then eventually weaning her to soy whole milk.
