a little worried

im trying to get my 12 month old on a regular feeding schedule, same as her older siblings, 3 meals a day with 2 snacks in between, milk with the main meals, 1 cup of water for 1 snack and 1 cup of juice (hers watered down) with the other. the problem is she doesn't like milk out of her sippy cup. she drinks it just fine in her bottle, she drinks juice and water in her bottle, but not the milk. i know i still have time to play with this, she doesn't have to be off the bottle yet but i'd like her to be. im confused why she'll take it out of the bottle and not the cup, and why she takes other liquids out of the cup but not milk.

  • Of the 3 of my kids, only my youngest took milk from a sippy. They older 2 only drank water for years. Once they moved to regular cups and now glasses, they drink milk. For my youngest, the milk had to be warmed up until he was about 3. At nearly 6 he still loves a cup of warm milk on a cool day.

  • The child I do child care for has just started liking milk out of the sippy cup. Took about 2 months for him to accept it. He is 15 months now.

  • try warming it up and putting it in a sippy and keep offering it as often as possible. Eventually she will start drinking it. And once she gets used to drinking it out of the sippy you can slowly reduce the amount of time you warm it up for, that way she will gradually get used to the cooler taste.
