My almost 13 month old has been EBF since birth. Her doctor told me to start her on cow's milk now 'cause she's not gaining enough and needs more fat. Well, I'm starting a new job next Monday and am worried about my DD 'cause she will not take cow's milk. She will drink juice or water out of a sippy cup, but refuses to drink the milk. I even put expressed breastmilk in the sippy cup and she spit that out too. She also is real picky when it comes to table food. She thinks its a game when she eats and throws most of it on the floor. I can only really get her to eat a few fruits, chicken sometimes, bread, cheerios and puffs, and peas and corn is the only veggie she will eat when she does want to eat. I'm just worried about being gone from her for 10 hours at a time and her not eating right. Oh and I also tried soy milk, she spit that out too. Anybody have any tips or know anything I can do?Answer Question
Not trying to bash....You are allowing her to be picky. I Put food and drink in front of my kids, they either eat and drink what I put in front of them. Or don't and eat and drink at the next meal.
If you give her only cows milk or water. She will drink the milk.
