15 month old refuse cow' s milk

My son is 15 months old and I' ve tried, numerous times, ever day, to give him cow' s milk. I' ve added Nesquick, heated it, added Horlicks, Milo. Tried Soya, tried the Vanilla milk. If I am lucky he will drink 50ml. Should I be concerned? What should I do?

Your son certainly does not want to drink milk any more.Try him on Parmalat First growth milk which has a good taste that he may like. If he refuses this be sure that he is on a good mixed diet and takes his other fluids regularly every day. He will need a calcium supplement. Try to get him to eat dairy products especially yoghurt.

Thank you for the reply. We did try Parmalat First Growth milk, but no luck either. Currently we are giving him one serving of Nido daily as well as yogurt. Got him so far to eat poridge with milk. Thanks again for the advise.
