Can I ask how much milk your toddler consumes a day?

just for rough comparison, I'm not overly concerned.
DS is 19 months, a v good eater but still consumes 4 beakers of full fat milk a day.
That's about 28oz or 800ml! Wow
Will also drink plenty of water/juice, say 2-3 tommy tippee cups.
He's not fat but a sturdy and tall for his age and very active so figure he needs it but at this rate I am thinking of buying a cow!

DD will have around 14 oz on a normal day but occasionally have a big cup in the afternoon. She also has water.

DS has 9oz before bed, drinks lots of water throughout day and eats next to nothing. everyone always comments on how big he is! obviously your LO needs it! smile

My dd is 2.4 - she still drinks 2 beakers of full fat milk a day as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner.

My DS is three next month. He would happily live on nothing but full fat cow's milk. He has about three quarters of a pint a day. Luckily we get doorstep milk!

DD is 18 months.

She doesn't like drinking milk, just has a little on her breakfast cereal and has a modest BF before bed, sometimes overnight if she wakes and first thing in the morning (to keep her quiet for a while so DH and I don't have to get up). She doesn't take much, though.

Otherwise, she just drinks water.

She's dinky, but well in proportion for her height and not skinny. She also has plenty of other dairy products, especially yoghurt and cheese.

Shows what a range there is, eh?!

Fab, thanks guys
Glad to hear there are other milk monsters out there guzzling as much as mine.

12 months - anywehere between 2-5BFs a day - so a fair amount.
