Got Milk?

We have been having a hard time getting Julienne to drink her milk. Since weaning she refuses to drink regular milk, I researched how to get a stubborn toddler to drink milk and all advice led to switching up the cups and milk until you find the right fit. So, off we went trying large to medium to small cups, with and without straws, plastic to glass and six different varieties of milk – all of our efforts to no avail. Nothing has worked…until now!

Happy baby is a happy mommy

My brilliant husband decided to try giving Juli some milk using her very mini toy kitchen cup. It is not just the tiny size, she already plays make-believe drinking with this cup, so drinking something real in it was fun for her! Miracle of all miracles…she asked for more milk every time it would go empty! Husband you deserve a standing ovation.
