Parveen one more thing is if your baby is eating properly you can give calcium in form of paneer, tofu etc. There is no compulsion that baby should have cows milk. She is having at daycare one glass is enough actually

Please dont give this milo, boost and all for babies. Ask the daycare not to give for your baby this milo and all they just contain sugar nothing else

Hello Parveen in markets 360degree all round sipper bottles are available. You can get one and introduce her. You can tell some interesting facts about the bottle before introducing her like you will get water from all sides, i have got your favourite colour bottle etc. As you asked something which makes your life easier this bottle is spill restitant also. So that baby will also know how to drink in normal tumblers also later when you introduce them. It is better than sippy cups also. One more thing is dont force feed your baby they will hate food. Just pour the milk in 360 bottles and give her. She will drink. Tell some stories or sit with her and you can drink some drinks ask tell her we are going to have a competition like who will complete soon. Give a reward like balloon when she finishes, or give what she likes. But dont make this habit also then they will expect everytime also

Hi Parveen there is no need to hustle with child.. she will drink milk at home too, in a sippy in due course. I think at home she might be eating snacks n other food items, that's why she might not get the urge to drink milk as her tummy remains full... So don't force her but one thing u can do is don't give any type of snack at least 1 andv1/2 hour before u want to give her milk ... Then she might feel hungry And will use sippy

Hi Praveen, set a milk time routine for child and ensure that child's tummy is not full when you are offering milk, you may also add a pinch of jaggery or turmeric to change the taste and colour of milk also try offering milk in a personalized and attractive steel glass.
