How much milk for 20 month old Lock Rss

Hi All

I'm just wondering how much milk should a 20 month old be having? Currently my DD is having 3 x 200mls and asks for more. I'm thinking she might be getting too much.

Thanks
Janelle

Hi

My childhood nurse recommends minimum 600ml per day so I think that you are on the right track and certainly wouldn't hurt her to have more. My daughter is also 20 months old and doesn.t really like to drink milk so have to feed her other calcium rich foods.

Cheers

Hi Janelle
I have 23mnth old twin boy (James) and girl (Louise) who seem to be doing well with usually 2 x 200mls of cows milk a day. Have a drink at breakfast and then at afternoon tea. If they want more they ask for it and get it, however they don't always even want that much. It might be worth thinking about, with that much milk, whether your toddler is also drinking enough water. Would nutritional snacks be helpful in satisfying appetite? I have taught the twins to see that their milk is "all gone" and "finished" ( They only get one refill if wanted ). They then have fun putting their cups in the sink. I am lucky in that both twins love yoghurt, custard and cheese. Yoghurt covered sultanas are well liked at our place.
Take care
