  • Maybe try a little milk at a time in a regular cup. My youngest wouldn't take a sippy cup at all, but would take a regular cup.

  • he doesnt need to have milk. if he will drink out of a sippy without milk let him.

  • He needs milk if you, the parent, and your pediatrician think he needs milk.

  • well does have have a malnutrition? otherwise they dont NEED milk. they need the nutrients it carries which he can get from other sources. as long as he is getting those nutrients from other foods its not a problem if he drink his milk from a sippy or not.

  • maybe try a different sippy cup... my DD would only drink out of the soft tip sippy cups...and i warmed it a bit the first few times

  • My daughter really sort of gave up milk once she gave up the bottle...She is 21 years old now and she doesn't like milk! She is perfectly healthy in every way. Why not just keep giving him a bottle of milk for a while until you are comfortable that he doesn't necessarily need a set amount of milk?

  • he is drinking lactaid milk cause he is lactose intolerant ( think i spelled it right) his peditrician says he needs at least 16 oz of milk a day which should b in the morning and before he goes to bed, i am just ready to take his bottle cause he pushes the nipple in and waste milk everywhere in his bed or bedroom.
