Hi Taanya, as per pediatrician, 2 year old child should have 400 ml of milk/milk products. The amount of milk you should feed her depends upon how much mother's milk she is taking. Make sure that total milk/milk products should not exceed 400 ml, as this might effect her other solid food intake.

She should have atleast 2 cups of milk apart from breast feeding, also this will help in removing her habit of bf . the cup size is normal and she can have a cup of milk after each meal, as later in life milk will only be a beverage and it should be ensured that your child doesnot suffer from lack of calcium and her bones are strong, milk is a really important food. You can give her substitutes like curd or other dairy products if she refuses or fuses to have milk from cup , :)
