1 year old won't take milk!!!
Hey, I haven't been on here for a while, since I was pregnant, but now I have a problem.
My son just turned 1 this past Saturday, and for months he has been refusing to take formula. The only bottle he would take would be as soon as he woke up in the morning, and for the rest of the day he would throw it on the floor. I have tried EVERYTHING. The doctors said it was ok he was giving it up, and not to worry.
Well, this last weekend I started trying to do the transition to Whole Milk... that went over well *note the sarcasm!!! lol*
I tricked him the first day and for his morning bottle he had a mix of milk and formula... but refuses to take milk the rest of the day. I tried warming it up, keeping it cold, I even put some flavoring in it.... NOTHING! He refuses to drink milk at all. I am worried b/c he needs it so much. I just don't know what else to do! He will drink his juice and water, but not the most important thing! He also is VERY stubborn! And I tried to just not give him anything so that he'd be so hungry he'd drink the milk (kinda mean, I know but good ole doc told me to try it!!) And he just threw a fit and cried for an hour and half (usually a happy boy) until I just gave in and fed him. I just don't know what to do anymore. I'm getting frustrated.
He eats well as far as food is concerned. He'll eat anything I put in front of him for the most part, but just won't take the milk.
Should I try to change to 2% or something?
Any suggestions would be so much appreciated!!!!
