Milk per day

Hello Prof,

My little girl is nearly 15 months, cow' s milk seems to constipate her, so I have left her on NAN 3! On average, how much milk should she have per day? She eats well at nursery school (she just started last week for the first time) - but is a terrible eater at home!

And just another quick question - I am really battling to get her to sleep at night - although she sleeps fairly well all night. I think it may be because she is scared I will leave (understandable with starting school). Any suggestions?

Thank you very much!!!

At this age your bay need about 180ml of milk 4 times a day.
She is going through a period of separation anxiety. She need slots of reassurance and patience especially at night and you must keep things very peaceful at bedtime. Reading to her as she falls asleep is a good way of dealing with this problem.
