hi Trinayani! how r u! please avoid giving him more than 500 ml of milk in a day. milk is filling so it reduces child's hunger for solid food. also as it doesn't have iron and other essential nutrients child may suffer from nutritional deficiencies in the longer run. also try serving him milk in attractive sippy cups or mugs with Joy's pic on it. surely he won't be able to refuse these attractive options. use of bottles for longer duration will again lead to many problems such as tooth decay,infections etc. as far as meals are concerned a 4 year old can have regular diet as adults . make him sit along with others on the dining chair and serve him what others are being served. praise him and reward him with a smiley if he finishes his meals . I am sure with your efforts ,praise and love he will soon get rid of bottle feed and will take normal diet.

hi again ! dear he will look for food only if he is hungry. but in this case milk intake is in more than required amount so he doesn't feel the hunger. take baby steps in reducing milk say if he takes milk 5 times u then make it 4 times and add one dish instead.
