My 2.8 year-old had none until very recently, when she started having some with cereal occasionally. She just refuses to drink it, and she doesn't even BF much any more (2-3x/day). She does like yogurt and cheese a lot, though.

DD didn't drink cow's milk at all until after she weaned (25 months). I put a splash of it in her cereal in the morning and that was it. She did eat cheese and yogurt, though.

no milk but mine, ds is 23m. dh is the only one here that drinks any cow's milk. I use organic soy or sometimes almond to cook with, and we do eat cheese and ds gets yogurt. But he still nurses a lot!

DD started drinking cow's milk around 16 mo here and there, and now has about 5 - 10 oz a day, either in 2 or 3 sittings. She asks for it, and has a bottle before bed which has really eased my sore-nipples-from the hour long nursing session. Our bedtime nursing session immediately went down to about 20-30 min. Ahh. I'd like to do raw too, but feel like local, organic, un-homogenized is as good as we can do right now.

DS1 nursed until 20 months and I introduced cows milk just after 1 year when I returned to work.

I made sure he had no more than 8-12 oz per day because I was worried about him replacing food with milk, iron absorption issues, constipation, etc. He would eat cheese / yogurt also. Even though he was at daycare, they were not to offer him any dairy except for what I sent also.

DS1 is now 3 and he likes cows milk, prefers water though, but I still limit the amount, not necessarily daily but weekly.

None. I just don't see a point since I am with her at home and nurse her whenever she wants. She loves drinking water and I would rather she drink that or breastmilk than anything else.

DD is 25 months and has between 9 and 18 oz of cow's milk a day. She's had one 9 oz bottle 3 days a week when I'm at work for about 6 months now. I just wasn't producing enough while pumping anymore. When it fits into our budget, it's organic raw milk, otherwise, just organic. She's still nursing several times a day and sometimes once in the middle of the night. She loooooves her bottles and it does give my husband the chance to cuddle with her in a way she otherwise wouldn't sit still for.
