You have gradually replaced the bottle-fed meals with solid ones. Very well. But he still needs enough milk or various dairy products to cover his calcium needs that will not go down until the end of childhood.

  • His milk, he is not ready to do without it. You have gradually replaced the bottle-fed meals with solid ones. Very well. But he still needs enough milk or various dairy products to cover his calcium needs that will not go down until the end of childhood. The whole family therefore goes to the dairy diet, except for a rare case of cow protein intolerance that affects only 2 to 5% of children.

How do we meet to cover his needs?

  • Small table to keep in mind to remember changing needs: between 0 and 1 year, your child must ingest 400 to 500 mg of calcium, then 500 mg between 1 and 3 years. And finally 700 to 900 mg between 4 and 9 years. You should know that 150 ml of milk offer 180 mg of calcium, which is also found in yogurt or three Swiss swiss, in 20 mg of Gruyere or three Kiri or in 45 g of Camembert. It's up to you to make your little addition and offer him enough dairy products every day according to his age and tastes.

More baby bottles ... and if there was no milk?

  • Knowing at what age the baby bottle should be removed is a matter of debate. Before 2 years, say some. When the child decides, say the others. It turns out that you may have removed the morning bib so that your toddler will take his breakfast like a big one. Many parents choose to enter kindergarten to take the plunge. Yes, but if your child does not want to drink his chocolate by the cup, he does not take yogurt instead and does not like the cheese, he will miss something. Count with your pediatrician. He may recommend you to bottle-feed, while your child is doing other dairy products or to offer him a straw to absorb all the contents of his bowl. It works !
