I didn't breastfeed but my DD went through the same thing when I switched her over to whole milk, so I would mix her bottle or sippy with half formula and half milk then eventually did the whole thing in milk... not sure if you're still producing or if you have stores of milk, but you could try that?

I BF'd until 13 months as well and my DS still won't drink more than 1-2oz of cow's milk a day. My pedi isn't concerned at all as long as he has yogurt and cheese every day (he loves both). As far as the sippy, sometimes I do drinkable yogurt or a smoothie in a sippy cup. He loves the stonyfield yobaby drinkable yogurt and will drink a sippy of that in about 5 minutes :wink:

I bf'd for 20 months and DS wouldn't touch any type of milk. At three, he still doesn't drink it. I try to give him calcium from other sources. It took me a while to "get over" him not drinking milk. Were we really created to drink milk from another animal?

I totally agree with this. We are the only mamals that drink milk after we are weaned. And from another animal for that matter. Milk is truly not the best thing for us. Yes some benefits but mostly not good.

My LO is 18m and has never had cows milk. She drinks Almond milk. I give her plenty of veggies to get calcium. I wold not worry about it too much. your LO will be just fine.
