My 19 month old DS was nursing less and less in the daytime and so I quit pumping at work. Now he will not take a bottle of goat or cow milk. He has always been great taking an expressed breast milk bottle for my mom but since we don't have breast milk any longer, we've tried other options. He eats other foods pretty well but will only drink juice or water. How important is milk at his age? He is still breastfeeding before bed, in the night and first thing in the morning, but that is it. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I'm pregnant with my second, so my 20 month old has only been getting colostrum for the past couple of months. she doesn't drink other types of milk, but she eats lots of different types of solids and has yogurt and cheese. there are plenty of parts of the world where they never drink animal milk, and it isn't necessary for them to get good nutrition. I would just focus on making sure he's getting lots of nutritious foods.
