Amber - posted on 02/17/2010 ( 2 moms have responded )




Here the past month or so my lil man has barely even drank 4 0z of whole milk everyday, if that! He eats pretty well , he might not eat as much if his teeth are bothering him but any ways, are there other moms whose LO stopped really drinkin milk and what did u do to help it? I give him some yogurt or some kind of cheese b/c he needs his calcium ....

Any tips or advice .....

I would say that you don't need to worry at that age. Make sure he eats plenty of dairy to compensate. My daughter never liked milk at all and it was a constant battle. She gave up her bedtime bottle at a very early age and I worried a lot. But she is fine. Good luck!

if he likes yogurt and cheese i wouldn't worry too much about it. make sure it's not low fat or fat free. they will get picky occasionally. have you tried adding chocolate or strawberry cow? you can get them with low sugar.
