No milk

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

No milk

Since e has turned 2 about a month ago she has been refusing all milk. She previously had milk in a bottle before bed and after her bday we decided she could only have a cup -she is happy with this but will only drink water from it. We started of giving both each night but the milk never gets drunk.
Is this ok she does have some Greek yog most days and quite a lot of cheese but do I need to worry??

She knows what she needs so I would trust her instincts. We stopped giving milk at bedtime at around the same age, TheWriggler is now not allowed milk after toothbrushing. It's bad for his teeth.

I wouldn't worry, both of mine gave up milk at about 20 months. It would have been a lot sooner for them but I kept trying to get them to drink it. Seems daft now. If E has a good diet anyway then I wouldn't worry at all. Vegan children manage ok without diary.

My dd stopped breast feeding at 15 months & wouldn't drink cows milk at all for ages. I didn't worry as she ate plenty of cheese & yoghurt to get her dairy!

Mine stopped Bf at just over 8months, and apart from milk on cereal hasn't had any (cows/formula/breast or other) since. I checked with our local weaning nurse who said was fine. I gave multivitamins til 12months and make sure I think about her calcium intake, so I offer yoghurt/fish/cheese daily. She's 15months now and doesn't seem to be missing it!
