Answer:
if you wish to wean off, then keep the baby well fed through other milk and complementary solid feeds. You can also discourage the child using bitter edible things like neem/karela juice. It will take some before the baby is completely weaned off. Also ask any other family member/husband to put the baby to sleep. 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 or 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.
