My toddler hates milk!

She will not drink milk at all and I have tried everything I can think of, I am running out of ideas. It started a few months after my second baby was born, I think she just stopped drinking milk because of her new baby brother and because I had recently taken her off the bottle. I give her anything I can to substitute the nutrition she is missing out on like bananas, yogurt, cheese etc... But she will not eat anything that I put milk into like cereal or even chocolate milk. I thought it was just a phase and she would eventually start drinking again but it has been more than 6 months and I am starting to worry about the effects. Any ideas on how to get her a milk mustache?

My daughter also went through a stage were she wouldn't drink milk. However, she would eat all kinds of things that were dairy products. During that stage of Kathryn's life I made sure that I had plenty of yogurt smoothies and string cheese in the house because that would get her the dairy that she needed to have in her diet. That would be the best suggestion that I could give to you as well. Also, you can occasionally use pudding as a treat.

How about adding a tiny bit of cocoa flavor to the milk. You do not have to add a full teaspoon just enough to change the taste, and maybe make sure it is really cold as maybe she might think that she is getting a juice and or soft drink while all along she is really getting milk. You can also put it in the blender with bananas and give it to her as it is were a milkshake. Best of luck, I hope this may help.
