    Default 16 month old refusing milk / bottles

    Hi! My DD who is 16 month has had a rough few months sleep wise and waking 2-3 times a night, which i suspect was due to molars. A warm milk bottle is always given when she wakes and usually does the trick. However since her molars have come through she is now refusing all bottles (even the one that she used to have just before bed!) AND sleeping through the night 6pm-6am! I know I shouldn't complain as the extra sleep has been fantastic but I'm really confused how she can go from LOVING her bottle to nothing? Is it ok that she won't drink milk anymore? TIA

    Its fine that she isnt having milk at night If she has a balanced normal diet then she will be fine. Does she eat cheese and yoghurt? That all contributes towards dairy intake. DS is 14 months and has 1 bottle a night hopefully he kicks it just as easily!

    Our daughter has 1-2 bottle bottles per day but I think she'd easily and happily go without. I wouldn't stress as long as enough dairy was give daily

    Yes she has yoghurt and cheese so still getting dairy in her diet. Thanks girls, I think I just needed some reassurance that everything is ok

    DD is 14 months and only on one bottle at night before bed. My CHN has said try to wean her from that bottle now as she doesn't need it and it will be harder to break the habit later. I am going to try to reduce the bed bottle and start giving her some milk in a cup with dinner instead.

    DS now 21 months old breastfed till 12 months and never took a bottle. Hated it. We gave him straws. Also never Liked milk till NOW and wont even touch formula!
    We stopped all night feedings at 12 months.
    As long as they have a good diet with plenty of yogurt and cheese, no milk is not a problem.
