My 11 1/2 month old baby was drinking both breast milk and formula milk till 1 week back. He got fever and cold one week back and since then he stopped drinking both formula and breast milk. Previously he had atleast 3 feeds at night. Now he does not demand for feed at night. He does not like food mixed with milk right from start. Now I tried flavouring formula milk with Date syrup, but he doesnt even sip a bit. How can I make him drink milk. If he still doesnt, how can I compensate with other foods for milk?
He has a cold and he may not be eating as well. At almost a year old he should be sleeping through the night without feeding at night. Just make it up during the day with 3 meals a day with snacks between meals. Any dairy product foods will be a good substitute for milk such as cheeses, yogurt, pudding, and ice cream.
My baby has stopped drinking formula 4 days ago, he's eating well and only drinking water, I'm worried he's not getting the nutrients he needs, can i give him cows milk? he's just turned 7 months old, thanks!
