15 month old refuse cow&#39 s milk
My son is 15 months old and I' ve tried, numerous times, ever day, to give him cow' s milk. I' ve added Nesquick, heated it, added Horlicks, Milo. Tried Soya, tried the Vanilla milk. If I am lucky he will drink 50ml. Should I be concerned? What should I do?

Your son certainly does not want to drink milk any more.Try him on Parmalat First growth milk which has a good taste that he may like. If he refuses this be sure that he is on a good mixed diet and takes his other fluids regularly every day. He will need a calcium supplement. Try to get him to eat dairy products especially yoghurt.
