My 1 year old refuses to drink cold milk. He will take it in a cup but it has to be warm not cold. Any suggestions?

My son also refused cold milk until he was about 18 months. Eventually I just stopped warming it up for him, and it would sit out for awhile and get more towards room temperature then he would drink it.

try to gradually decrease the temperature of the milk a little bit at a time, so they dont notice the difference. eventually, he`ll take it cold. hope this helps

have you tried leaving it out of the fridge so at it gets a room temperature? I'm actually afraid to give my son who is 21months old cold milk, and the only reason is for his throat. I live in Greece and the doctors here tell us not to give them cold milk just yet.
