Cow’s milk alternatives
Does anyone use alternative milks with their little ones? My one year old needs to drop the bottle, but she loves it! Our doctor told us to slowly switch over to cow’s milk then work on getting her to take milk from a sippy cup. But we live that dairy free lifestyle, and my daughter has actually been throwing it up whenever we try to give her milk. What do you use? How did you get your little ones to give up the precious bottle? Thanks!!
We have never given my son cow’s milk and his Pediatrician was fine with that. He was breastfed and then at about a year old I started adding hemp milk into breast milk for his bottle. After he outgrew the bottle it’s been only water or the occasional Honest juice pouch. He is a very healthy 5 year old ❤️ Hope this helps Mama!
Our house is dairy free too! My son is almost 14 months so we recently switched over too - he’s been drinking Califia Farms almond milk and Forager coconut and cashew milk - it took a little bit of time but he takes both just fine now. He’s also loving water too. I would offer your daughter both (dairy free milk and water) in two sippy cups then at night we still give him bottle with dairy free milk. He loves his bottle of night, but know we need to probably break the habit soon 😬
@meghanhbrennan . yea the switch can be tough, but I am glad that it worked for you guys eventually! Idk about bottles, i have a 16 month old who drinks bottles, so I'm prob not the best person to ask lol.
