He drinks a sippy cup before each meal (3 meals) & I'd say the amount ranges from 5-8oz depending on the cup since they don't have measurements on the ones we have. He's always been right in the middle for his weight & height, but he seems to be more interested in snacking with us in between meals & is gaining some weight. Most of the time we try to eat with him, but if I have a fruit snack at a different time I'll usually let him have some with me.
Should I keep it at 5oz per meal or cut out one of the sippy cups & substitute water or healthy juice? He eats dairy with his food daily too, whether it be cheerios with milk, yogurt, cheese, etc. Oh & he still takes two 90-120min naps a day & sleeps 12-13hrs at night.
Also someone said that it's not necessary to get whole milk & you can get 2%. Either way I don't mind, but my husband drinks 2% so it'd be easier just to share.
Thanks ladies <3

Way too much milk. Other than breastmilk, water is best for humans. Cow milk is for baby cows, and humans don't need it. Like many other nutrients, and despite the claims of the dairy industry, plant based calcium is superior to animal based. While cow mild is rich in protein, the kind of protein that is contains is casein, while human milk protein is lactalbumin, with is easily digestible; more the 50% of casein isn’t digested and can cause health problems later in life, like food allergies.
