...and then it happened to me.

A doctor today told me I needed to start giving my 15 month old cows milk, because breastmilk doesn't provide enough hydration or nutrition after a year.

Right?

Her reasoning, " You have no way of knowing how much he is drinking."

I'm pretty sure my boobs never had windows, I've NEVER known how much he is drinking, lol!

You don't. All that matters is their diaper output. :) I'm sure your pedi will be fine!

We go to a military hospital, and the clinic we are assigned to is full of knuckleheads. I'm working on getting us changed!

Wouldn't water be better for hydration than cow's milk anyway? Lol
