Hello, My daughter is 21 month old. Since few weeks she is not having her food properly. She usually have around 300 ml milk in night and around 150-200 ml milk in morning and evening. As she is not having food properly and like sweet item most I have to mix milk in her meal also as milk is the only one thing she can have if she refuses to have any other stuffs. My query is 1) Is her milk in take is more? I am giving her Mother Dairy's cow milk. 2) I want to stop her use of diaper in night. But she must need 300-350 ml liquid in night. In day time when she sleep for 1. 5-2 hr in that period she urinate 2-3 times. Than in night after having so much liquid how I change her habbit. How many times and what time I will awake her to pee? 3) From her birth she is a formula feed baby , so habituated to have milk or any liquid in bottle. I try to give her shipper but she dint even touched that. How do I make her to have liquid in cup or glass? Thanks Jhuma

Agree with Neha, try adding different varieties in her diet, jhuma . My daughter is also of same age, I still formula feed her because of the readily available vitamins and probiotics in formula milk . her daily milk intake is about 500ml to 600ml which is good to give enough calcium, and I akdi also give her loads of Curd too . we need to ensure that she gets other nutrients and vitamins as well. If u prefer non veg, try giving her boild egg with tomato sauce , my kid loves it . Give her chicken,meat and loads of veggies. Try making it attractive to her, don't stick to traditional foods alone. Children get bored very soon, keep experimenting. I posted one such experimental recipe on parentune contest, power patties, I will be happy if it helps you.

Try to give milk in a steel glass. My son didnt use sipper at all. He preferred steel glass directly. You might be the lucky one too ?? . Regarding the diapers i had stopped putting diapers completely as instructed by my sins teacher who has trained lot of kids for potty training. She said some times they will mess up the clothes but we are ready to change it. Here too i was lucky .

Dear jhuma.. take it easy on or daughter s habit. Its okay if she had more of milk. try to add different items in her meal in the day time. it would take some time for this transition but she will get accustomed. Regarding toilet training as per my view its too early to expect her to be toilet trained. some children take time for this. a good night' s sleep is much important for children at this age.

Not sure of the diaper question, as I was way too relaxed with my child when it came to diapers, i wanted her to be toiled trained during the day first and then graduated to night, just wanted the changes to be easy on her as too many changes stress the kids out, again just my point of view

Hey Jhuma, from my experience I will just say these are all normal issues so you need not worry, it use to happen with my daughter also sometimes the milk intake of the kids gets too much which is why they don't eat any other food specially if the child enjoys milk. I am not sure if mixing milk in her meal is a good idea, just saying I am not an expert but saying this with experiments I did. Also cow milk is very fulfilling unlike the regular milk. For transition to sipper it will take some time, you could start with sippers that have soft spout like bottles they make the bottle weening easy.
