Milk Diet

Anesu - posted on 05/15/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




My daughter(3) drinks milk more than she eats at meal times. She nimbles through her meals and then later cries hysterically for milk. My husband and I have said no for one day and she lost weight that day and she hardly weight. She is is really small and growing at 5 % for her age.

Any suggestions on how to wean her off milk.

You should be asking your doctor to check her out more so...have some evaluations done about her diet and so on. A child should not be relying on milk at this age for her diet. If this is not a health issue but a behavioral one, then you need to modify her diet, explain that she gets to have milk at certain times and be consistent with it. She is gonna toss the typical fit because she is not getting her way. SHe might not eat either but after not eating a few meals then she might start in. Always offer healthy foods to her and water as well. Her age should be getting only 3 to 4 portions of milk or dairy a day.
