I am not a HUGE fan of my paediatrician (we have different opinions about almost everything) but she has many many years of experience/ wisdom and is not quick at all to prescribe drugs (which is a hard quality to find these days). Because of this, I choose to stay with her. My little guy is 21 months and I am almost 6 months pregnant. Because of the pregnancy, my body has stopped producing any substantial amount of milk and it hurts like hell to bf anyways (but I still let him comfort nurse to sleep at night).
So my paediatrician asked my how much milk my lo was drinking everyday - I told her that I am no longer bfing (not by choice) and so she said that I need to make sure that he gets at least 3 cups of homo milk everyday. But the problem is - my lo hates the taste of milk. I have tried everything - even putting chocolate mix in it and he still refuses to drink it. I'm starting to get worried because he is on the small side physically and he probably won't get my milk until the end of December when I'm due. I have tried almond milk, rice milk, oat milk -nothing. He would rather drink water... he throws down the cup, glass, whatever and then demands wa-wa... I'm worried - should I be?
