Ugh, not sure what to do. Owen is refusing to drink anything except breastmilk and water. I've tried mixing some BF with cow's milk, but he spits it out. I am so tired of pumping, but don't want to go cold turkey on him. Anyone else experience this at first? When did it get better? I'm wondering if he may just never be a milk drinker, in which case I guess I'll just up his dairy intake in other ways...

Have you tried Lactaid? Avery wasn't a big fan of regular whole milk so my sister suggested Lactaid whole milk. It already has the sugars broken down so it tastes sweeter. She likes it a lot better than regular whole milk. I give it to her warmed in a bottle at night as part of our bedtime routine and she does really well with it.

Grady didn't like the milk at first either so I started mixing in just really small amounts to his formula. Breast milk and cows milk are so different though I could see why he is rejecting it. What about almond milk?

Thanks for the suggestion on the Lactaid, Misty. Grady was drinking milk just fine but got super constipated. I put him back on formula until we can find a solution. I think I'll try that!

When my son turned one he had a hard time too..I actually mixed in plain yogurt with whole milk in his sippy so it was kind of like a smoothie..I did it for a full month. Eventually I just reduced the yogurt and he finally accepted it.

What were your proportions of breast milk to whole milk, Lola? Try 3/4 breast milk, 1/4 whole milk for a week. Then do 1/2 and 1/2 for another week. Then 3/4 whole, 1/4 breast. And finally all whole milk.

my guy doesn't like cow's milk either. he still breastfeeds and gets calcium and vitamin D elsewhere though so I'm not worried. might try almond milk though, good idea.

Lilah was easy to transition to cows milk, she's not picky about her bottles, she just wants a bottle! My middle daughter was trickier though. I did 3/4 breast milk to 1/4 cows milk for a week, half and half for 2 weeks, then 1/4 to 3/4 for 1 weeks, and finally straight cows milk.

There are lots of other alternatives to cow's milk to try, too, like rice milk, oat milk, help milk, hazelnut milk, and 7 grain milk (Pacific Foods brand). Nut & Grain Beverages - Pacific Foods
The calcium content of pretty much all of those is comparable to cow's milk. The only things that you might have to "supplement" on, depending on the drink, is protein and fat.

Great suggestion for proportions! Trying it this week!

How much milk should our kiddos be drinking daily at this point? It seems like I am going through milk too fast!!

All they really need right now is 16 oz a day. Less if you include other dairy sources like yogurt or cheese.

We give Misha goat's milk, sometimes by itself and sometimes mixed with breast milk, but he has no problems with it.
