Any suggestions on what to do when an 11 month old decides he hates formula and hates milk??

He won't drink anything except water. He won't take the bottle anymore at all, so we've been using a sippy cup.

He'll be a year in 2 weeks.

  • well one make sure he's getting his calcium and vitamins from another source. maybe a liquid vitamin you can put into the water. have you tried different types of milk, or adding a slight bit of flavor to it (not a ton but just a bit of strawberry or choc syrup?) i really don't know as i never had the problem, but it may be that its upsetting his tummy and thats why he doesn't want it, so i would call the ped. and ask for any tips or ideas.

  • My son went through a phase like that. We just gave him yogurt and cheese and other dairy products to try to make up for it. Then we figured out he will drink 2% and not whole milk.
