Hi all,
Was just wondering how long you give LO milk for? My DS has milk before bed (only a little) and i just wondered whether im just giving it to him out of habit or whether he actually needs it? He is a very big boy for his age so doesnt need it weight wise and sometimes asks for juice instead so its not really a comfort thing either so wonder whether or not to just stop it alltogether?

Hi Shelly

I'm not sure what the right answer is my ds isn't overly fussed with milk and would rather have water or diluted juice to drink, I do still offer milk at night but he hardly drinks it so I'm going to stop it shortly and see how we get on, my ds is a big boy to

Hi, I say, give as much milk as possible for as long as possible. Our little ones are growing and need calcium for their bones. My almost three year old drinks 10 ounces morning and night and I'll keep this up until she's a teenager (and beyond) if she'll let me!

I agree with NH, DD1 is 4 years old and she still has milk in the morning and at night, she loves it. No harm in carrying it on if he likes it xxx

We don't have a specific routine with milk anymore but she has it in cereal and drinks it when she wants!

Freya has milk on her cereals in the morning and then a cup with her dinner in the evening, sometimes she asks for more or sometimes she wants juice instead. She's just turned three so may be a bit older.

She eats a lot of yoghurt and cheese too so if she doesn't have much milk she's getting plenty of calcium elsewhere. Babybel cheese is packed with the stuff!
