His drink was milk, I will have to try that he may like it too.

Quoting Lunarprancer:

What drink?

My mom used to put vanilla extract in my milk, it was yum.

Crystal Light or Mio in his water, or Ovaltine in his milk! We put some coffee creamer in his milk before, but I wasn't comfortable with it.

My daughter was refusing to drink milk, but also didnt eat much, particularly low amounts of fats and protein.

I gave her s strawberry milkshake that i let melt made with whole fat milk and real whipped cream in it.. She loved it. After a few days, i gave her an ice cold strawberry pediasure.a few days after that, i gave her the peiasure mixed withwhole milk. She now drinks about 12 oz a day of strawberrypediasure and milk after meals.


Hopefully soon i can get her to just milk, lol. Otherwise, she just drinks water. On special occasions, she drinks bolthouse farms or odwalla juice.

I don't, because my kids like milk by itself. So why fix what isn't broken? They do get chocolate milk as a treat on occasions though, but not until they were much older.

I know the feeling ds is on a liquid vitamin and that is the only way to get him to drink it. He always samples things before he will actually eat or drink it. lol

Quoting BabySocks0912:

Awe.I'm glad he liked it. When Ds was younger and wouldn't take his meds i would spike his drinks. He's 3 now so, once in awhile dh will trick him into trying something new lol

when my daughter is consitpated, i spike her chocolate milk with a dose of laxative.  so much easier that way.  haven't had to do it in a long while though because her potty issues have stopped.  instead if holding it for over a week at a time because she was afraid it would hurt, she has now embraced pooping and leaves them behind for us to gawk at.  you'd think a grown man had been in there. oy.
