Hi mommies.. I need your help,my 18months old son refuses to drink plain milk. I add little sugar but it's not working.. Please suggest me some health drink for toddlers of his age.

Try fruit juices, yoghurt, you can add pediasure to the milk. Most breastfed infants develop a dislike towards external milk, even a small cup is good to begin with. If he enjoys ragi give him ragi porridge, it contains calcium.

put sum saffron n give him may b he is not comfortable wit white color milk in bottle if on breastfeed....i had faced same problem wen my son was 1 year or so...initially i gv saffron dat too he refused after few days ...den gv adding v lil chocolate syrup jus for taste sake as pedia sure wasnt in mkt 8 yrs bk...

I tried pediasure mixing pediasure with milk but it was quite heavy for his tummy..he started passing hard stools and became fussy when it came to food.

r u giving cow milk to ur baby?

I give pasteurised milk..since our milkman doesn't provide us pure cow milk.

normal packet dat is available is pasteurised.try n give him warm milk in branded feeding bottle ..mk sure bottle is washed properly..or give formula milk.. avoid tetra pack milk as it is heavy for such small baby...

my son is not used to feeding bottle..he throws it..I give him milk in sipper.. planning to try junior Horlicks.is it a good idea??
