My child is 2 years age
Since, 5 6 months my daughter has started hating milk all of a sudden. No good reason before these 6 months she was having it in bottle but, I left the bottle as the doctors asked and on the top of it she got bad cough and cold. So I thought she is growing also. So its for her betterment. She drank milk but with a lot of tantrums each time when she had to have milk. I also got irritated and many times angry too. But last 2 3 days she drank milk and only vomited. So, today I left the tug of war of milk and handling her. But, then that's not going to help anyway. Milk is milk. So a solution to it is a must for me. I tried soy milk but she was not liking its taste. I tried to give paneer she did not like it so much. So, now what?

Milk is a good source of calcium, Vitamin D, protein and other vital nutrients. The most common reason that some children stop drinking milk is when there is a transition from breast milk or formula to regular milk or from bottles to drinking cups. Toddler may avoid milk because they feel some discomfort from drinking milk.
Next Steps
1. Toddlers’ drinking and eating habits are much like adults and develop over time, hence over time they can develop a stronger taste for other drinks than milk. 2. Children should never be forced to drink milk if they are not willing to. Eating food should not be a battleground for children but rather an enjoyable experience. No single item of food is essential to any child's diet and can always be replaced by other food items. It is more essential that a child is enjoying eating and is given a well-balanced mixed diet during meals.
Health Tips
Instead of giving milk directly to drink you can give curd, Mattha, paneer, Dallia made in milk, etc. Homoeopaths have very good medicines if someome has intolarance of milk or milk products. Homoeopathic Medicines for intolarance of milk is vary person to person acording to there symptoms.
