I admit it I am NOT a milk drinker. I really never have been. I don't like it. I drank "Hershey's Milk Shakes" when I was pregnant to have the added calcium, but even then I'd drink a few sips each day. I can't explain it to you, but I just don't like it.
Both my sons were good milk drinkers. Both boys always drank more milk than they needed to and without a fuss. Blake would ask for chocolate milk from time to time. Colby has yogurt shakes (milk with yogurt mixed in). But, for the most part they drink white milk without a fuss.
Yes, you might have noticed that I wrote about Blake in the past tense. I took Blake's sippy cups away in Jan(?) and since then there has been a milk struggle in the house. He will drink water. He will drink juice. But, we struggle to get him to drink milk. He has milk with every meal, but many times it goes untouched. He has to drink his milk at dinner, but the other meals it is just offered. That means I know he gets 4oz a day.
We have offered to make him chocolate milk. We've tried different cups. We've tried straws. I don't know what else to try since I refuse to let him go back to the sippy cup. I know he can drink out of a regular cup so he needs to!
In some ways I don't want to seem like a hypocrite since I'm forcing him to do something that at his age I didn't like to do either. My issue is that he did like to drink it and now he doesn't, me I never liked it.
Anyone else have a child give up milk? What did you do?
