i was wondering about that - DS is almost 30lbs and will only take milk from a bottle...i'm DYING to get rid of them (bottles) but hesitant if he won't take it any other way!
he eats a lot of dairy though (yogurt, cottage cheese) so i'm thinking he'd be okay...
good to know your pedi said it's fine.
As long as she is eating a balanced diet and getting enough fluids somewhere I wouldn't worry about her cutting out milk.
Edmund goes through phases. Some days he wants nothing but milk and some days he wants nothing to do with it. He's still getting all the things he needs from the food that he is eating and his vitamin.
My general rule of thumb is that if his pedi isn't concerned I shouldn't be either. I know that doesn't work for some pedis but mine hasn't given me a reason to not trust him. Plus he never led my grandma the wrong direction when she was caring for my sister and I and he was my pedi.
For a little while DS would only drink milk from a bottle, not from a cup. He drank juice from a cup just fine. Then he slowly figured it out. Then, when we started weaning him off of bottles at 18 months, he stopped again, I think out of protest because I tried giving him a cup before bed.
Time to admit my bad mom moment: I let him have chocolate milk a few times as a way to make sure he was getting calcium. Also because I had some at home since it's been a pregnancy craving of mine.
It took about a week, but he got over it. It probably helped that he only gets milk at daycare, so he warmed up to it again. I think it's just a phase.
