We are trialing cow's milk, and the protocol states to start with one ounce, every 24 hours (if without negative reaction) for three days, and it builds up very slowly from there. Wyatt is still getting the Neocate in his bottle (2, 8 ounce bottles a day) and water in his cup at meals and whenever. He loves the cup, has no issues. All he has ever had in it is water, and all he has ever had in the bottle is Neocate.
At his 12m check up, our pedi schooled me a bit on the fact that he still had a bottle
and I explained that when we start the cow milk, my plan was to put the milk in a cup as I have tried Neocate in the cup and he just won't drink it. He spits it out and throws the cup.
This morning I put the 12 ounce of cow milk in his cup and he took a sip, and then threw the cup on the floor and tried to wipe his tongue off saying yuck. So, I put the remaining ounce in his bottle with the Neocate and he drank everything.
So, how am to go forward with him disliking the taste of anything but water in his sippy cup? I'm not comfortable adding anything flavor wise to the cow milk because it is a milk trial and I don't want to confuse anything in regards to that. Should I try a straw cup and use that just for milk?
Any ideas are much appreciated. Please feel free to move, I wasn't sure where to post.
