Am I giving my son too much milk, he is 17 months old
My son is 17 months old - I give him a 5oz bottle first thing and another 5 oz bottle at bedtime. I've moved him onto semi-skimmed because he is quite chunky and doesn't need the fat. Is this too much milk? My mother in law seems to think so <img src='/forum/smilies/sad_smiley.gif' /> He only drinks water the rest of the day. Has milk also in cereal, cheese, yoghurt etc.... Thanks x
I don't think you are ghiving you LO too much milk - personally I would keep him on full fat not semi-skimmed, as they need it for energy (even tho you say he is chunky).
My LO (almost 2) only has a milk at night now (9 oz+), but has it on cereals & puddings etc.
He may not need the morning bottle tho, so if you think he is a little 'chunky' maybe drop that one!!
