This might sound harsh, but your the parent and he's probably not coordinated enough to pour his own drinks yet! Don't give him milk except for the amount that you have been recommended to give him. He'll figure it out...if he's actually thirsty, he'll drink whatever else you give him. If not, he'll probably pitch a fit, but unless you give in, he'll get the idea after a while. Our daugher gets milk with her meals and a 1/2 juice, 1/2 water bottle each day--anything else is strictly water...it took her a minute to get used to it, but she figured it out...and now, she'll even toss down a juice sippy to drink mommy or daddy's glass of water.
