Question: My boy doesn't like milk..neither formula milk nor packet milk...he takes only breast milk which is not enough for him...what should i have to do?
Answer: Hi! A 14 months old doesnt need much milk as he is having other family food which takes care of calcium intake..Feeding on demand is perfectly alright at this age.. If you are breastfeeding, the pressure to start outside milk is less. Start with about 30 ml in a glass or sipper/ straw bottle. Don't worry about the quantity. It takes time for baby to like the taste of other milk. If at all. You can instead give things like curds and paneer that most babies like, milk is basically like a good snack. My daughter at 2+ is finally having about 100 ml a day. And many days she's not interested in it either. Don't mix anything in the milk. Let baby get used to taste on its own. Don't mask it with sugar or any complan etc.
