She drinks 16 ounces of milk a day...but only out of a bottle.
She will be 15 months old tomorrow.
I want to get her off the bottle finally but I don't know how to get her to drink milk out of a cup!
Now, I know some of you say they don't need milk...and thats fine...but I don't agree.I think mine DOES need milk...so please don't give me any answers like that, it won't be helpful to me.Thanks.
Anyway, I offer her milk in a cup daily.
I've warmed it up.I've tried adding strawberry and chocolate flavoring.I've tried giving it to her out of a "big persons" cup..soon as she sees its milk, she turns her head.
Last question. IF I do not succeed in getting her to drink milk from a cup...how many servings a day of other dairy products should I offer to her to replace the milk? Such as cottage cheese,cheese sticks,yogurt (thankfully she likes all those)
THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP!!! :)

I agree milk is very important. Don't force the sippy cup. Wait a while and then buy some fun looking sippy cups. Playtex sells Baby Einstein themed ones that are fun to use. My Son used a bottle at meals until he was 3. That was the only way I got him to drink milk. No big deal. His teeth are fine. I think we often listen to what you are "supposed" to do with children when in fact, they will do what they are supposed to do when they are ready. Go at your own pace and don't rush anything. That goes for potty training too. I heard nightmares about the potty from others. They start too young and stress out the child. I just waited until I knew he understood what to do at 3 and I stopped using diapers during the day. A few wet pants and he figured it out without hysterics. When you push an issue, you create unnecessary stress for you and the child. Who cares what other people think. Do what is right for you and the child.
