Q.

Suddenly doesnt wat milk

Hi Doc
My 17 month old boy used to love milk, now since monday, he refuses to drink it. What could be causing this? He is getting his canines, could this be the cause?

Teething could be the reason but it is not uncommon for children of this age to lose interest in drinking milk. Your son should be on a good mixed diet by now.Try him on a good tasting milk such as Parmalat First Growth milk and see if he will drink this.
