What else does a one year old BFing baby drink?

When the baby is one but still BFing do you give them cow;s milk too? We are down to morning and night and I have been doing milk in a sippy which he likes. just curious.

The only other thing my son drinks is water. We haven't tried cow's milk yet.

we did mostly EBM in a cup (because I had it anyway) and water, then slowly introduced cow's milk...

Re: What else does a one year old BFing baby drink?

At 19 mos, my nursling still has no interest in cow's milk. He takes two sips, makes a funny face, and hands the cup back to me. So, he just gets momma milk from "the tap" twice a day and water or verrrry watered-down apple juice with his solid meals.

Re: What else does a one year old BFing baby drink?

My DD is 19 months and will not drink cow's milk. MIL even tried adding chocolate to it, and no. MIL also insists she needs juice and tries giving her juice (both watered down and regular) and DD won't drink that either. The only thing she will drink is water and mama milk.

My pedi tried to tell me DD needs cow's milk in addition to my milk, but I really don't think she does. She eats tons of cheese and yogurt, so I think she is getting enough dairy, anyway.

ETA: here is what kellymom says about cow's milk after 1 year: http://www.kellymom.com/nutrition/so...s.html#cowmilk

Hey thanks I am feeling ambivalent about weaning and not wanting to push too much milk either.

Our pediatrician just said he should be getting 24 oz of milk. (Breast milk or cows milk). She said he still didn't need water, but we could give it to him to start him in the habit of drinking water.

Just make sure it's WHOLE milk!

My DS is 9 months, so I am no help but I don't want to give my DS a cup at all at 12 months, it seems so...close...

Re: What else does a one year old BFing baby drink?

Once they turn 1 it's safe to give them cows milk.But I had a hard time convincing DD.If it didn't come from the tap she didn't want it. As long as their eating yogurt, cheese and fruit I wouldn't worry
