Q.

Ref 13 month old

Hi doc,
Thanks very much for advising. Baby is about 11kg''s.
He eats very well, but just refuses the milk. I try to cut down on portion sizes so he can have more milk.
I don''t know what else to do as he is just not interested.
This has been a problem since birth, along with other problems like LI, etc.
If I am unable to increase his milk intake, are there supplements I can give him?
He still does get up at night for feeds, but throughout the night feeds are about 250ml in total. He refuses milk at naptime during the day.
Many thanks - R

Try to get your baby to take more fluids and if he won't drink milk you will need to give him a calcium supplement every day. Have you tried a good tasting milk such as Parmalat First Growth milk?
