how much milk is your little one drinking?

My ds is 21mths and I give him 1 10oz cup of milk a day and 1 10oz cup of water a day.
Is that too little?
He nurses when he first wakes up both sides. For nap and betime it's usually 1 side.

I think that is enough since you are still nursing. Vivian is 2.5 and she gets 3 cups of milk that are 9 oz cups. She gets one when she wakes up, one with lunch and one with/after dinner. I always keep a cup with water out for her and she gets a small cup of juice after nap with her snack.

Dd2 is 19 mos & probably drinks 20-24 oz/day(she has a sippy-full at bfast, lunch & dinner). She nurses at bedtime, once in the night & in the morning. She has water in between meals & anytime we're outside.

I've really slacked off with the milk. (we give coconut milk.)
DD does nurse 4-5 times a day though so ...eh. lol.

She does drink lots and lots of water. She's wide open all the time and gets super thirsty!

Yeah, if we were still nursing I wouldn't give as much either...if any at all! Once we stopped nursing to sleep and he went to his own bed I started giving him bottles of milk. It was the only peaceful way to transition.

Coconut milk sounds pretty good. How expensive is it compared to regular milk?

My DS does not drink much. I am lucky if we get one good cup of milk in him a day. He eats yogurt and cheese, so I do not worry too much.

He just generally does not like to drink. Besides that cup of milk he drinks about 1 other cup of juice/water a day. We have water available almost all the time, or juice mixed with water. He just does not drink it.

DS will have 3-4 sippy cups of milk a day, at 10 oz each, he LOVES it and i would rather he have it over juices or anything. I try to make sure its organic, and no hormones or anything.

He wont drink straight water either. I dont its going to hurt him to have so much as he is still slightly underweight for his age, not for lack of eating,lol. Just lack of junkfood hes a vegiehound! :)
