    Milk can be quite filling. Have you tried watering the milk down?

    Ah ok dd has been on babyotic but that's it. I have fish oil but she hates it.
    She drinks goat milk. About 600ml per day spread over 4 bottles 1 watered down. I don't know what else to give her to drink other than water. What else can they drink?

    Water is really all they need - she's only drinking cause she's hungry - what times of the day do you give the milk and do you offer milk or food first ?

    When she wakes its the first thing she looks for. About an hour later she has breakfast (except this week) she then has another at about 11 then nothing until bed its the nights that are the problem I think. I try offer food first except for the first morning one and she just asks for milk. Is it a habit? I'm so terrible at this

    My son is going through a stage with his food as well. What's worked for us is just giving him food and he just walks around grazing on . Ideally I would love him to be in his high chair ,but you just have to do whatever you have to.

    Ok that's good to know. So is grazing ok? Dd loves that over sitting and trying to eat a whole meal with us.

    You are not terrible!!
    Let her see you pour the milk in her bottle in the morning and say oh it's empty then when she should have her day/afternoon ones say you ran out and just keep offering food and water? she will probably crack it but she will get over it , we just need to break the habit!
    Keep her morning and night ones ( only night after dinner) for the time being , you just need to get her appetite back - share your meals with her, offer a wide variety of food, keep snacks out that she can pick at during the day and don't offer milk as compensation for meals as its only making it worse
