My 2 years old toddler is just off the bottle, and milk as well?

Asked by 2late2be (2286points) November 29th, 2008

He just gave up the bottle, forced, but he does not want anymore milk? is that fine? he now wants lots of yogurt, danonino, and i dont know how to say when you put bananas or stawberries on a blender, but that too, is that enough milk? Should he be drinking just milk also?

As far as I know, a dairy serving is a dairy serving. All counts. Just watch for sugar/fat contents.

Take a look at the nutrition information on the back of these packages, and compare it to the nutrition info for however much milk he used to drink from a bottle (or count the # of cups of liquid he drinks, etc). As long as he’s getting the same nutrients, I don’t think it matters too much what form it comes in.

My son didn’t drink much milk at two either. I gave him orange juice fortified with calcium to be sure he was getting enough.

Try Soy Milk—my 2 kids loved it, no algeries, no hormones, and no anti-biotics.

Milk is poision, containing puss, rodent hair, hormones, and antibiotics…..give the baby Soy!

Please show me some scientific evidence that supports the hypothesis of “milk is poison”. I’ve been drinking it for all my life and I’m as healthy as can be. My searches show a lot of quackpots trying to get you to buy their book, but no actual empirical evidence.
I do know of the bovine growth hormone marketed by Monsanto and as such do not drink milk while in America. rBST is not approved for use in Canada.

I grew up on a farm. I don’t let my dogs drink milk, but you are welcome too consume bovine growth hormone to your hearts content.

Except that I don’t consume any, because it’s not allowed in Canada. If I were American though I certainly would only consume milk that was not made using r-BST.

As long as your child is healthy and getting other sources of dairy products, I wouldn’t worry. You night mention this to the peditrician next time you see him to get a professional opinion.

little puss, little rodent hair—it’s all good

I’m not sure what type of milk you were drinking Mizuki, but I certainly haven’t had rodent hair nor any other observable contaminant in my milk.

If he’s eating well he should be fine, but don’t give up on the milk. Keep offering it to him in a sippy cup. He will eventually drink it. Just keep offering it.

puss in a sippy cup—cool! just like grandma used to make!
