how much milk does your 18-20 month old drink??

DS is drinking so much less now that he drinks from the sippy...he never finishes one. He is down to about 10-12 oz. a day....but he does eat yogurt daily and he does eat cheese fairly often. Is this enough? Do they need a certain amount of actual milk daily? I know my ped said no more than 18-24 oz., but she never told me the minimum amount (if there is one)

She LOVES milk and would drink more if i let her. I cut her off at 24 oz a day (per the Ped). She also usually eats 1 YoBaby Yogurt every day.

ETA - as long as he's eating the other stuff you mentioned I think that's fine!

My DS is 22 months but has been drinking the same amount for a while now - around 12-16 oz per day. He has one sippy in the morning and one b/f bed - i put 8 oz in each but he doesn't always drink the entire one in the morning. My Ped said to strive for this amount but that was a LONG time ago now! I will ask again at his 2 yr visit b/c i am curious how long they should drink this much milk - anyone know?

DD gets two cups of milk a day and she almost always finishes both - so around 14-16 oz.

DD was drinking 20-24oz but when we went to the doctor today he said it was time to cut back. So starting tomorrow we are cutting it down to 15oz. She loves milk!

I have the same problem where my 19 month DS won't finish a sippy cup so I still give him a bottle at nighttime. I know I need to stop the bottle completely but he never finishes the sippy just ilke in your experience.
I also give yogurt and cheese daily.
