I have a 13mnth old boy who has always refused the bottle. I dropped the night time breast feed at 12months (and the morning breast feed last week). To give him his calcium I give him a tub of youghurt every day, cheese and make him smoothies a couple of times a week, which he loves drinking from his sipper cup. He also love rice bubbles and milk. The problem is since I dropped the night time feed he`s starting waking between 5.15am and 6 (whereas he used to sleep till btwn 7 and 8, and I think he might be waking coz he`s hungry. The problem is I can`t get him to drink milk from his sipper cup at all. I`ve tried cows milk, formula, milo, vanilla essense in his milk, hot milk, cold milk etc but he just throws the cup away or point blank refuses.
I am worried about two things - is he getting enough calcium and how should I ensure he is not waking hungry? Should I worry about getting him to drink milk?
