    I wouldn't stress about 200mls of formula a day. At that age DS2 was still having 8-12 breastfeeds in 24 hours.

    Formula has far more nutrients than cows milk (or equivalents) and at 18 months she should be having 1.5 serves of dairy. 1 serve is 250mls of milk. So I think the formula is fine!

    I wish DS2 would drink toddler milk or similar. It would be such a relief to be honest.

    If the dietician says the milk is good then still do it.
    Honestly. ..that cut out the milk rule doesn't apply for kids with feeding issues. Well..not all the time.
    My daughter has 'milk'- pediasure. .so a formula really. And it has nutrients and vitamins. Without it she most certainly be underweight and sick..
    She's gets a straw cup with pediasure when she's first up. Anywhere from 100-200mls.
    And it makes absolutely no bearing on if she eats breakfast or other meals. Some days she'll look at me like I'm crazy person when I offer yogurt or something an hour later. .other days she'll hoover it up and ask for more!
    How long do you wait after wake up though?
    My daughter. .no matter what time she decides to get up. .doesn't get her milk until after 7 (this is wishful thinking that one day she will sleep in).
    I had to stretch that out...more so she didn't have tantrums about having milk earlier and earlier.
    And then I offer breakfast at 8 or 9am (depending on our day).
    As I said. .it really doesn't impact on her breakfast hunger.
    And yep. She's 3. Dietician and Dr's are all fine with giving it.

    I was told not to give her milk at all and focus on her eating. It's harder said than done. But after a few screams and seeing that I wouldn't give in its food first, then milk if I see it's totally rejected.

    She just ate before after skipping dinner and breakfast and lunch. It's very stressful.

    There's a big difference though between milk and formula.
    And if that is the dietician's advice and you are comfortable with it then there isn't a problem.

    Weight loss is not good and I can only imagine how stressed you are - hugs.

    Did you get her weighed at your GP or a child health clinic? What did they suggest?

    At the GP but that's where I always get her weighed except when the paed weighs her. Her birth percentiles were 91 (weight) and 84 (height) and she's now 6th and 5th.
