  • He only needs to be drinking 2 to 3 cups of milk a day. If he is drinking more than that, give him water instead. He might also be ready to eat the things that you are now too. It may just be that he doesn't want the gerber food anymore. GL!

  • It kinda sounds like your child may be tired of the gerber foods, offer some of the "grown up" foods, that you think your child may eat, pastas, mashed potatoes, etc.

  • Talk to your pediatrition. At least ry putting rice baby cereal in his milk until you figure this out. They also have those drinks that re replcements for kids who are picky eaters. I think Danon makes them. I am not sure if he is old enough to drink them. But def. talk to your pedtrition.

  • My DD loves milk and if I let her she will drink it all day, however I only give her milk at nap time and bed time, since she still needs a cup to fall asleep. I give her water and juice through out the day and I try to give her all different things, some are successful and others not so much. I would try to give him to different types of cups, she have one type(rubber top) for milk and another (hard top) for juice and water..
