  • It could be she doesn't like the taste or she is allergic.

  • Does she not like the taste of it? Or is she gagging because she's kinda choking on it? Maybe her sippy cup has a flow that is too fast for her?

  • Does she have any other symptoms? Does she react the same to flavored milk?

  • Is she drinking it too quickly and it's going down the wrong pipe?

  • It could be the taste, the texture, even the smell. Some children just do not like milk. My daughter, two, nurses several times a day... But when presented with a cup of cow's milk by one of her older brothers, she took one taste and turned her nose up at it. She just doesn't like it.

  • Give her water. 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. Here is some of what the doctors at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine say: http://www.pcrm.org/health/prevmed/building_bones.html
