    Coby has gone right off his bottles, he normaly would have a 6oz bottle for bed and a 6oz bottle over night, but he flat refuses them now!
    The only thing he will drink is juice.

    We give him yoguerts rice pudding and cheese things, what else can i try him on to replace the milk he wont drink?

    hi my dd is just the same, she refused milk ages ago. i spoke to health visitor ans she said to add her milk to as much of her food as i could. ie-veg purees, cereal ect. and to give her cheeses and yoghurts. the hv said as long as i did this she would be fine

    Does he still have some spoonfed meals? If so I'd add it to porridge in the mornings. What about custard?

    Smoothie is a good idea - I cut the top off of one of Ella's cups and put it in there, that way it controlled a bit of the mess!! :lol:

    Noah no longer has milk in bottles. Instead I give him an ovaltine before bed, so he still gets a nice soothing ot drink, ut it contains lots of vits and minerals, in particular iron. Its very common for babies to be iron deficient. They lose their natural store after 6 months of age, which is why make second stage milk for 6+ months, with added iron. Perhaps try Ovaltine. Or if not just try to make sure he still gets plenty of iron in his diet.
