It is a very typical scenario of a milk predominant feeding practice which only you can handle. give milk (any milk) to drink only once at supper time and not first thing in the morning. start feeding semisolids fron breakfast time. the only transition required is to stop milk in the day time and give as much as the child requirea after dinner.
your child also might require some supplements auch as iron and zinc for which you should consult a child specialist.
