How much milk will my baby need after he has started eating solids?

How much milk will my baby need after he has started eating solids?

Variable: This is variable but a common question. Generally infants don't need more than 32 oz of milk per day and this will decrease depending on how much food the infant eats. At a year many infants are taking about 15-20 oz per day in my experience. Some infants will eat more food than others but all will naturally adjust milk intake dependent on food intake. ...Read more

My son is 1 now and still doesn't eat solids hardly at all and is still on a lot of bottles should I introduce cows milk or stay with formula?

Try to lomit btls: I would make sure the kid is brought to the table and sits while others eat.Make sure your meal plan includes something you can mash up and offer him.Over time he will want to sample some of what others eat. I'd continue formula in a sippy cup and only offer water in bottles to protect his teeth.When he is taking one or two solids a day a switch to milk is ok but limit to 24 oz/d. ...Read more

Off formula.: Hi Janice, If she is indeed 5 years old, you can stop the formula milk and change to whole cow's milk. I'm surprised she is still on formula at kindergarten age. ...Read more

2 1/2 yrs old hypractiv son. Severe eating problems as he drinks milk only. Pl guide to change his eating habits so that he takes solids.

This is complicated: I think you need a pediatrician or pediatric psychologist's help. One thing i can help here is that many kids who drink a lot of milk have iron deficiency. Interestingly iron deficient kids do not want eat solids. Once we treat them with iron, their personality changes and they start eating regular foods. I would recommend that you take your son to a doctor to test if he is iron deficient or not. ...Read more

At what age does solid food, not milk, become more vital for a baby? When can I stop worrying that my baby is getting enough ounces of milk?

At what age does solid food, not milk, become more vital for a baby? When can I stop worrying that my baby is getting enough ounces of milk?

Teeth: I believe our body tells us what we need. When teeth come in it is time to start bringing food in. Breast milk is fine but i tell my new moms that when a child has teeth to chew 9 to 10 months is a good time to start bringing in rice and other vegetables. But only bring in 1 every week or 2 so she can watch for adverse reactions. Breast feeding the first 9-12 months is the best option. ...Read more

My two year old boy is only 31 inches. Hardly eats anything solid., only has 24oz of milk per day. Should i be worried about his diet and height?

My two year old boy is only 31 inches. Hardly eats anything solid., only has 24oz of milk per day. Should i be worried about his diet and height?

Review his diet...: Review his diet with his pediatrician. A 2 year old should have a regular diet, with similar solid foods as a 3 year old. A diet of mainly milk usually is not healthy enough. If it is the texture he doesn't like, the solid foods can be mashed up and/or made into porridge type soups. ...Read more

My 10month doesn't like to eat solid foods but drink lots of milk.. Is it fine?

Not if just milk..: If it is just regular milk the baby is drinking, then the baby's diet is not adequate. If it is iron fortified infant formula the baby is drinking, then that is sufficient nutrition yet at 10 onths. Regular cow's milk does not have enough vitamins, iron or correct distribution of nutrients to be the sole food for an under one-year old. Your baby is still really growing fast and brain developing! ...Read more

Can I switch my 10 month old from formula to goats milk? Lately she has been refusing formula and only wants to eat solids.

Can I switch my 10 month old from formula to goats milk? Lately she has been refusing formula and only wants to eat solids.

Why bother: Milk is a convenient source of calcium in a kids diet & promoted heavily by the dairy industry as a perfect food, bull! if a kid is exploring other foods, calcium sources like yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese, goat cheese and even calcium tablets can provide all they need.They can get the fat/protein/fluid they need thru other diet sources including water. ...Read more

It's ok if i don't give my 7 mo old milk for 1 or 2 days? Cause he refuse to eat solid so badly i tried other ways but still not taking

Teething?: At seven months if he misses several milk feeding no harm is done. Milk only tends to bloat his belly so that he has no room for solids. The other question to answer for baby is whether or not he is teething for if he is he may refuse to eat solid food. ...Read more
