How much milk/fluid should a 1 year old be getting?

My son is turning one and is breastfed on demand. I am trying to introduce whole milk in a sippy cup but he just won't take it. I stared giving him water in a sippy at 9 months but he never really drank it, just chewed on it. He is also starting to become less interested in nursing, only about 3 times a day. I'm worried he is not getting enough fluids. He eats yogurt and cheese so i'm not too worried about the calcium, but I don't want him dehydrated. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your thoughts, but he started refusing a bottle at 6 months. He has only been breastfed since then. He is priving to be quite a stuborn child :-)
