Refusing milk!!

Hi

Little M has refused her milk the last few days :sadface: She's never been that keen on Formula TBH, but up until now was drinking up to 5oz AM and up to 7oz before bed. Sometimes she refuses the AM milk and doesn't always drink all 7oz before bed.

We've been mixing 2oz of formula to cow's milk to get the formula used up, but the last few days have tried all formula and all cow's milk but she point blank refuses it, arching her back,turning and twisting etc

Should I drop it all together and give her more calcium through her food?

I don't think she's teething ?( But her sleep patterns have been rubbish for nearly 2 weeks also. I don't know what's going on!

Any advice?

Thanks

Have you changed the cup she has it in?

So long as she is getting enough calcium from her diet its not an issue.

Hi Rikva

No the cup is the same, she has a certain cup for Milk and a different one for water (she won't let you muddle up her system!)

I guess I'm not too worried about the calcium intake as if she's not drinking milk then maybe I can get more food in her.

TBH, the last few weeks have difficult, she's getting upset at meal times,waking in the night (used to sleep 7pm-6am), and now refusing her milk. I convinced it's not teething but wish it was really so I could get my happy little girl back :sadface:

I'd put money on it that its just "one of those things". OUr little darlings go though stages when they change their patterns or when they don't want any change. If I'm right then I'm afraid that probably its just a case of grin and bear it. Sorry, thats probably exactly what you knew anyway and isn't much help x

Hi C

I have always had the same battle with my DS, he has never been a huge fan of milk. What we do is either buy flavoured milk or mix in a little nesquik flavour and he is ok with that, is you really want little M to drink milk maybe that is worth a try?

Thanks Rivka and Chicks

Today was the same, couldn't even get the cup near her mouth.

I suppose I thought she'd be a lot older before she 'grew out' of having milk.

Seeing the cup seems to be a flash point now, so it seems pointless getting her upset before bed etc. I think I may just try for a few more days and if it's the same give her an extra yogurt AM and maybe try her with a small bowl of porridge at 6.30pm.

Thanks again

xxxxxxxx

Hi chicken.
One of my twinny friends babies don't have milk at all. When she stopped breastfeeding they flatly refused to drink milk and just have water from their sippycups and get their milk nutrients from their food. If its not just a phase and M doesn't get into milk again she'll be fine as long as your concientious about her diet - which I know very well you will be blowkiss

hope she's back on form again soon

Aww thanks Suzy, lovely to hear from you, hope you and the pickles are doing well blowkiss

I think once M has made up her mind about something, that's it, wonder who she gets that from........... :innocent:

She's got a good diet,so all should be fine.My mum told me earlier that my little Sister gave up milk at 12 months.
