My 14 DD has only ever drunk bm and water. Was wondering if I need to introduce cow's milk in a cup at any time? Have tried her twice, she just looked at me as if I had given her something rotten! I might (might not ) stop BF soon, so what else should she drink? Does she need a breast milk substitute or will her diet / water be OK?

I transferred to cold cows milk and BM at 13 months. DS had no problems. Cow's milk in the day BM morning and night.

No, she doesn't need milk if you don't want ot give it to her.
Mine never had it (one weaned at 11 mths, t'other at 30 mths).They only have milk on cereal or in cheese and yoghurt.

Thanks. My feeling is that she would be fine without it, just 'others' saying I should be giving it to her hmm Having said that I can't see her substituting anything for her beloved bm - EVER grin
