No more Milk?

(3 Posts)

My LG is 23 months and from about 1 year has only had a 9oz bottle in the morning.
She eats very well and has calcium in other forms everyday (milk in cereal, cheese, yogurt etc)
Over the last week she won't have her morning bottle either, so having no milk from a bottle at all, she just refuses to drink it.
Is this normal for her age? Should I be trying to get her to drink it?
I'm putting less in her bottle but am throwing it away and don't want to continue wasting it!
Any advice much appreciated smile

From 2 years there is no recommended minimum for consumption of milk, so I'd guess it would be fine if she drops it.

Is she getting enough good quality protein and fat? If she drops her milk you need to look at replacing these as she needs them for growth and development. Things like tinned salmon made into fish cakes are good and if you use the one that contains bones, it's high in calcium too. Plain old cheese on toast or even almond butter on toast are good too. Ready brek is fortified with calcium as well smile

If she does

Sorry, don't know what happened there, the premature posting fairy must have been at work!

Was also going to post a link to this handy guide to calcium intakesmile
