HOW CAN I GET MY 11 MONTH OLD TO DRINK REGULAR MILK?

MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN ON ALIMENTUM SINCE ONE MONTH. LATELY SHE ONLY TAKES 3 TO 4 BOTTLES A DAY. SHE USED TO TAKE ABOUT 8. I SPOKE TO HER DR HE SUGGESTED 2% MILK. I TRIED THAT BUT SHE WILL NOT DRINK IT. I TRIED GIVING HER 1 OUNCE OF 2% AND 4 OUNCES OF FORMULA TO SLWOLY GET HER OFF FORMULA. SHE WILL NOT TAKE IT THAT WAY. I AM CONCERNED SHE IS NOT GETTING ENOUGH NUTRITION. HELP

  • Try giving her whole milk and if that doesn't work, you can switch her to a certain kind of formula thats for 12-24 month olds and it's not exactly formula but it's not milk either. She just might not like milk? lol. Sorry if this didn't really answer your question but it might be a start.
