My daughter is breastfed, but we're weaning (she's doing it herself mostly; also I'm working more). She used to take a bottle of breastmilk as a baby, but we hadn't offered it in awhile; at around 12 months she took a bottle or two of cow's milk with my mom, no problem.... now, out of any kind of cup, she just spits it out and would rather have water. She gets plenty of calcium, I think... she'd eat yogurt and cheese all day long if I let her. Is milk really essential? We're down to two nursing sessions a day no, so I'm starting to worry about what will replace it. I'm not willing to do flavored milk.Answer Question

I agree with SophiaofLight. My son was that same way. Maybe here stomach isn't strong enough. Cow's milk is not an essential. We only drink it b/c of the calcium it provides, but the truth is Vegans don't drink it and do just fine. You can get the calcium from dark green veggies, which is why cows have so much in their milk(its their diet). I suggest that you try Almond milk, Soy milk, Coconut milk, or even Hemp milk. (Almond Milk is my families favorite).
