Q.

Milk, teeth etc

Hi Doc

My son is drinking Isomil 2 and he is 14months old. I have tried Fresh Goat's Milk, Flavoured soya but he did not take to them

Before being switched over to Isomil he was on Nan (change coz of his eczema) while on Nan I guess he got tired of teh mik coz he'd refuse to drink his milk and rather have water, then moved to Isomil.............loved it (Iguess a new taste) but now almost 8 months into Isomil he also doesn't want to drink his milk.

Then I tried adding a teaspoon of Milo to his 240ml bottle of milk amd he polished it off with out a fuss or fighting.

Now I was worried abt the effect it would hve on his teeth and I also saw u think MIlo, Nesquick etc are not necessary at the moment

Y is my son getting tired of a particular brand etc and what can I do to get him to drink his milk without Milo.

Thanks

You can add the Milo if it is necesssary to get him to take his bottle. Make sure that you brush his teeth regularly.
