Bottle
Dear Doc. My son is 17 months old. When is the best time to take him on his bottle (He drink Parmalot First growth milk) which he has morning, afternoon and in the evenings, he can have up to 2L in a 2 hour period? He does drink water for a sippi cup and occasinally we will give him some dilated juice also in a sippi cup.

I am not sure if you really meant that your little son can drink 2L of milk in 2 hours or you meant 24 hours. In any case he is drinking too much milk per day.He is already drinking from a sippy cup so he can also drink his milk from a sippy cup as well. He only needs about 600ml of milk per day now.Of course he should also drink water and once a day can have dilute fruit juice.
