  • No..I wouldn't be worried. My oldest wouldn't drink any milk..ever. . unless it was chocolate. Try to give her yogurt & cheese products.

  • my son drinks a lot of milk; a lot of juice gives him diarrhea.
    so he drinks probably....6 or so cups of milk a day, but I'm not complaining, I love that he loves his milk so much.

    maybe just keep offering it to her? you can't exactly force her to drink milk, just keep offering it though.

  • 16 - 24 oz of dairy is the daily recommendation for a toddler.

  • I would just give her milk products like cheese, yougurt, and cottage cheese

  • One thing we do is keep a sippy of milk in the fridge and every 30 minutes or so I offer it to her and just put it back in the fridge. She drinks about 20 oz of milk a day and usually has a yogurt daily as well.
