  • So take the bottle away. Put milk in the sippy cup instead, and no more bottle. I disagree with using anything in the milk though, as it's very high in sugar, no matter what you use (syrup, powder, etc).

Here is some of what the doctors at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine say:

  • When my DD had a cold she didn't want to drink milk. I think it was causing to much mucous in her throat ( I know ewww). When the cold susided and she didn't look like a glazed donut anymore she was happy to have her milk back.
