Hi, my 3 yr old son is still drink milk through bottle, at night ask for milk every 2-3 hrs while sleeping... pls helpnutrition Corner
you can use some attractive cup/glass for milk. Try giving milk when the child is hungry. You need to keep trying and be firm about not giving bottle. You may flavour the milk with natural flavourings like elaichi powder, kesar, dates syrup or use flavoured milk supplements. You may give in the form of fruit shakes like mango/banana/cheeku/apple shake. You may even try giving milk in the form of porridges/kheer/custards. Other alternatives to milk are curd/yogurt, paneer/cheese, buttermilk/lassi, soymilk. You should also keep the child well fed through the day with three main meals and two snacks. This would help in keeping child full at night and ensure a better sleep.
