Q.

When to stop milk

I need advice on when can I stop my 14 months old LB milk intake during the day I will still give him milk in the evening. Or must I try to limit his intake in the evenings as he will drink about 500ml milk during and before bedtime. During the day he is getting tea and juice and water.

Help please.

You little son only needs about 700ml of milk a day at his age.He seems to be getting enough milk and other fluids every day.You do not mention whether he has milk in the morning.
