my son is 1. 6 years. i feed him milk with bottle. i tried feeding him milk with glass. but he refuses to drink with glass. i want to stop his habit of bottle feeding. one day I did not feed him with bottle the he did not drink milk at all the whole day. he is a fussy eater and do sent like to eat anything accept curd. so I again started feeding him with bottle so that at least some nutrients continue to go in. i my worried cos people say as he grows it will be more difficult to leave the habit. what do I do.

you can offer him milk in attractive cup/sipper/glass, when he generally takes his milk feed and is most hungry. You have to keep trying till the child starts accepting milk in cup/glass/sipper. You have to be firm in not giving him bottle. 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. Other alternatives to milk are curd/yogurt, paneer/cheese, buttermilk/lassi.
