Hi all i have a 10 month old boy who just stopped breastfeeding one day when he was 9 months old. For the past month i have been giving him a mix of formula and organic cows milk (he wont drink just formula). The only thing is he refuses to drink from a bottle so he has it i sippy cup but im lucky if he drinks 60ml at a time. that is only a 1/4 of what he should be having at a time. He eats breakfest lunch and dinner as well as snacks in between. I try and give him yoghurt and cheese to keep his dairy intake up but im at a loss as to how to get him to drink more.

any ideas??

When we switched from formula to milk and bottle to sippy cup, our daughter drank a lot less at first. Eventually she got used to it, and then probably drank too much milk.
