Hi. My baby is 1yr 11months. She still prefer to take milk from feeder bottle. In night she takes milk around 3times and in afternoon at the time of sleeping. She can't sleep without bottle. She doesn't like anything in food.. Her diet is too less.. only half bowl dal is her dinner. Please advise how can I improve her diet.

limit the amount of milk to 500-650 ml maximum per day. Keep a gap of at least 2-3 hours between each feed. For her eating habits, you make her eat meals with family. Seeing others eat a variety of foods would encourage her to eat those foods. It is okay if she is taking few spoons initially. You may then gradually increase the amount of food. Gradually increase those according to her acceptance. Hope this helps.
