    Default 1-2yr old's and milk

    Ds is around 14m old and drinks milk from a sippy/straw cup (has been since around 12m). Anyway it is really hard to get him to drink a good amount from it. He will usually have 4-5 sips then that's it, he is ready to throw it or turn his head.
    At night before bed he is worse (I offer milk avo and bedtime and he has milk in his cereal at breakfast and yoghurt/cheese throughout) is that right?

    Don't forget cows milk is just a drink - not a formula substitute - if it's calcium you are worried about - at that age all they need is 1 - 1 and a half serve a day so a tub of yogurt , piece of cheese plus veggies or seeds is plenty without any milk

    As long as he is getting calcium in other ways, that's great.

    Thanks all. He loves pieces of cheese (I buy tasty block cheese, I don't like the salt content :-/)

    My nearly two year old is a milk junky! Won't I to bed without a sippy of milk. But won't touch cheese or yoghurt. DS is the opposite lives cheese and yoghurt but hates straight milk.
