Baby does not want cows milk anymore

Hi

My 17 months baby does not want cows milk anymore, he just want juice even at night. What can I give him especially at night as he might damage his teeth.

Thanks

He must not have fruit juice as this will definitely damage his teeth and also may cause diarrhoea due to all the fructose he is taking in.Rooibos tea would be better choice. Brush your baby's teeth regularly.
