Needs variety: I have encountered more than one "milk baby" in my career. If they are allowed to, they will hold out for milk alone. Unfortunately, at age 1, this does not provide adequate nutrition. You need to make sure she is eating food first, and if she refuses, you can't give in and reward her with milk just so she'll have something in her system. No more than 20-26 ounces of milk a day. Period.
