My 17th months old daughter doesn't like anything much that I can offer her to full her stomach completely. Whatever she eats just a bite or two. I feel she remains hungry as she keeps on crying but not ready to eat. How much cow milk can I give her in a day that even if she is not eating much her stomach will be filled up. Please suggest.Thanks

As a general rule they will eat what they need. It is best to continue to offer her real food as opposed to just fluid. I found my girls would eat hot cereal if i mixed in a bit of applesauce (also keeps them from being constipated). If you let her decide what she will and will not eat at this age it will set a precedent for all the years to come. keep trying new things she will not get all the nutrition she needs from milk alone. Good luck and God bless!
