Subject: getting my little girl off of drinking so much milk,and getting her off the bottle and eating food

Question: My daughter is 2 years old. she drinks way to much milk and along with that she also is still on the bottle.

how do i get her to stop drinking so much milk, and eating food? she doesn't seem to be interested in food. she nibbles but she doesnt eat enough for me to not worry.

i strayed to get her off the bottle and she got sick because she depends on milk so much. what can i do to get her off the milk and bottle?

Answer: Dear Jesseca:

Try making her food attractive to her. Making items with faces. Do a search on the internet and look for ideas for making kids food more interesting. There are all sorts of tips on how to make food with faces, in shapes of animals, that sort of thing.

Remember to cut back first on the bottle and the milk rather than just taking it away from her. Leave snack food down where she can get her hands on it when she is hungry.

Make eating times special. Buy a set of small silverware, kids size. Maybe find her a table that is her size....make sure everything makes her feel like a big girl. Then spend sometime in her world.

Best wishes!
