Yep, milk is filling and its easier to drink than to stop what your doing and sit for food.
Why eat when you can drink and feel the same afterwards?
Paed told me a small cup of milk before bed for dd (16months) and that it!
She was having 3 bottles a day still >_<
My 3yo DS drinks about 1 liter full cream a day.
My 8, 5 and 3 year olds have milk on their cereal and that's it. All my kids hate drinking milk (except for breast milk).
All three of mine love milk as a drink, I think it's yuck!
OP - I think you're doing the right thing, my understanding is that ditching the bottle is more about dental problems and oral development than it is about the contents.
