My daughter has started leaving quite a lot of her three milk cups a day - each around 200ml. I wondered if she was telling me she didn't need that much now?
It's full fat milk (we like that best too!) and she also enjoys yoghurts, milk on her cereal, cheese, etc. Worried she may be eating less of her meals than she should/could if she was a little hungrier for them.
My DS varies from day to day (hes 2.7) but usually has a bottle (of formula) on waking (175ml) and one cup before bathtime (about same amount). He might then have a fromage frais during the day, maybe some cheese in meals, and milk on cereal/porridge.
He doesnt get milk during the day unless he's poorly and can't keep food down. If he asks for it in the daytime he can have it, but he rarely does.
That amount seems about right (how scientific is that diagnosis!) He has semi skimmed now because we do.
ds sometimes has a small cup of milk in the morning and rarely has one at night. He has no other milk during the day but does have milk in cereal, yoghurt, cheese, etc instead. He also has semi-skimmed milk when he does drink it.
DS is 3 but his milk inteke has been the same for about a year. he has milk on his cereals about half a pint in total, then a cup of milk during the day and another cup at bed time, so just over a pint in total 1.5 pints maximum. he loves cheese and yoghurt, but generally doesn't eat well so I dont have any thoughts about limiting it.
