  • No more than 24 ounces is what our local health department says.

  • I wouldn't worry about them drinking a certain amount, just as long as he is getting some form of milk. I don't think that you need to worry if he's getting 12 oz., or anything, just make sure that he's getting something.

  • i don't add up the ounces, she drinks as much organic whole milk as she wants.

  • Cow's milk, or what?

    They never have to have it, but if you want to give it to him, 2 cups a day (16 ounces total) is what the American Academy of Family Physicians recommends.

    If you're interested, Dr Weil says cow's milk isn't so great for kids (or anyone for that matter)  Plenty of other sources say so as well, but I think most people know of and respect Dr. Weil's nutritional advice.  This link is about breastfeeding, but at the bottom is the where he talks about cow's milk and children.

  • Our pediatrician says 20-24oz per day along with a well balanced diet.
