My son stopped using a bottle

Hi Doc
My son is now 15 months old and he was on Novalac AC and he doesn''t want it anymore I tried klim and Nespray but he''s just not interested. He is now drinking Rooibos tea and he loves it a lot, my question is, is there anything else I can give him besides tea?

Your son still needs about 600ml of milk a day. Give him Parmalat First Growth Milk or Nido. He may prefer to drink his milk from a cup.Rooibos tea is certainly not enough for him.

Your pictures of a warm sunny day look deuifhtgll it''s so cold here, just wanting to spring to happen 29 degrees F (-1.6 C). Alice is so precious, just wishing I could pick her up and cuddle. We''ll continue praying for Teddy. Can''t believe that one year ago I was preparing to visit NZ. The owls have begun hooting at night, a wonderful sound to fall asleep to and the birds are beginning to return, so spring is on the way, just very cooly!

He can also have plain cows milk.

He is also getting the calcium and other nutrients from yoghurt and cheese.
