keep the baby well fed through other milk and complementary solid feeds. At night give her a filling dinner and offer a milk feed at sleep time. Also ask any other family member/husband to put the baby to sleep. Bottle feeding is not recommended as it may pose hygiene issues and may lead to dental caries. You can use some attractive cup/glass for milk. Try giving milk when the child is hungry. You may flavour the milk with natural flavourings like elaichi powder, kesar, dates syrup etc. 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.
