Hi my dear moms! Tanong ko lang sana kung hanggang kelan po talaga dapat mag stop magmilk ang bata? 2 years old na po kasi ang anak ko, everytime nakikita siya ng kapitbahay namim sinasabi lagi na tama na raw dapat tigil na siya sa pagmi milk. Ano po ba dapat gawin ko? And ano maganda vits para lumakas siya kumain? Mas malakas pa rn siya magmilk kesa kumain solid foods.

Don't mind your neighbor... If you're child is eating right, as in lahat kinakain na niya, then pwede na unti unting bawasan ang milk,  Would you believe 7 yo na huminto ang eldest ko mag milk at enfagrow lacto free pa milk niya at naka feeding bottle pa.  As for my daughter, she turning 5, wala problema sa kanya sa pagkain pero hinahanap talaga niya ang milk.  Sa madaling araw, dalawa beses pa rin kami gumigising kasi humihingi siya. Her milk is Pediasure.  Hindi pa rin kami graduate sa kakahugas ng bote. Milk is still the best source of nutrition and vitamins and minerals our children need kaya hangang gusto nila bigay mo lang.

Hi sis, as mworx says, tama sya hwag mo pansinin kapitbahay mo sa comment nila..I also have a son who's 2 and half yr old. Nagmimilk pa sya and I give him progress gold. Mas gusto ko magmilk lang sya palagi since hindi lahat ng food nutrients nkukuha niya sa kinakain niya.. supplement niya yung milk..as long as gusto niya magmilk yaan mo lang po. siguro ang challenge dun pano ishift sa glass ang pag inom niya para before pumasok sa school at least hindi na sya sa feeding bottle.

I think drinking milk is a healthy thing that even adult should practice.  hindi sya dapat itigil. You should make sure that your kid drinks lots of water as well and brush teeth properly.

Pahabol ko lang, yung milk ba talaga ang pinapatigil nila or baka sa bote (dede) pa rin nag-drink ang kid mo?  Kasi kung bote, you need to teach your child na sa baso na uminom.

Nag-start po kasi magkastain ngipin niya nung uminom siya ng ferrous sulfate last september dahil low blood daw po sya. Pinainom ko sya nun, then after 3days nung napapansin ko nanagkakamantsa na two front teeth niya, inistop ko na kahit walang pagadvise sa doctor. Until now may mantsa teeth niya and unti unti na siya nasisira. :(

My youngest stopped drinking milk sa bottle right before siya magpre-school. My eldest naman stopped nung 2 siya. Iba iba kasi ang kids. Pero gradually, introduce mo na siya sa glass. Maybe, isa din sa reason ng pagstart na masira ang teeth niya yun. Me kids talaga na maaga masira ang baby teeth. So dont worry. But never stop your baby's millk... My eldest is turning 18, pero up to now, hinahabol ko pa din para uminom ng hehe

Agree with the mommies here... No urgent reason para patigilin ang mga kiddos natin magmilk. They can drink it for as long as they want, hindi naman sya pang-baby lang eh, it's a good source of calcium and other vitamins - whatever their age is. I'm a coffee drinker, pero personally, comfort drink ko ang milk. Hehe. Brings back memories of my lola who makes a glass for me each night, kahit nung college na ko when I lived with them. :D

Siguro yung pagdede sa bottle ang may 'deadline' kumbaga. You can do it gradually naman. :)

for me, as long as gusto ng bata, then okay lang. however, kung ayaw na mag-drink ng milk, okay lang din at wag pilitin. for children aged 1 year and above naman ang main source of nutrition should already be coming from solids and not from milk. milk is just a convenient source of calcium that we can get elsewhere, like green leafy veggies, yoghurts, cheese, etc. also, pwede na ring i-transition to fresh milk instead of giving formula milk. toddlers don't really need formula milk. please see below links for reference:

Try scrubbing the stain teeth while your kid is sleeping with swab or any cloth (make sure its wet) or pag nag brush ka ng teeth niya pahigain mo para malinis mabuti and also drink water after milk.

Hi sis! For me hindi dapat masstop yung paginom ng mga bata ng milk. Siguro what your neighbor meant was stop na dapat dumede sa bottle yung kid mo. madaming nutrients nakukuha ang mga kids sa milk like pampatangkad, pampalakas ng katawan and pampatalino. So dapat kahit nagsschool na siya, tuloy pa din yung pag inom ng milk.

Yung ferrous naman, masyadong dark and thick kasi yun kaya parang feeling mo nakakasira sa teeth ng kid mo. What you can do is brush the teeth kada inom niya ng ferrous kasi mapait din naman lasa nun.

I have a 2 yr old daughter and she still drinks from her bottle. Wala naman issue sa pedia niya kasi bata pa naman. Matibay din teeth niya and im sure its because of the milk.

Good luck sis

My son is 3 years old and 7 months old and he still drinks his milk everyday. Pero naka glass na siya. Hindi parin siya sanay so ginagawa ko e kinukutsara ko siya hanggang sa maubos. Tiyagaan lang talaga. Malakas na siyang kumain ng solid food pero I still make sure that he drinks his milk kahit once a day lang. Dati twice a day pero dahil sobrang busog na siya sa gani e nagsusuka na. So every morning nalang yung milk niya. minsan gusto niya ng cereals or oatmeal sa morning. Dun ko na nilalagay yung milk niya. =)  kahit nag aaral na yung anak mo dapat umiinom parin ng milk. Hindi naman kailangan expensive yung milk e. basta may right amount of calcuim intake lang siya everyday. =)

Thank you mommies!! Highly appreciated po ang mga replies nyo. Hindi naman maselan sa food anak ko, kaso ang gusto niya talaga may sabaw para malakas sya kumain. Ang tendency kasi kapag fries ang ulam, hihingi sya then ngunguyain lang niya tapos ibibigay lang din sakin. Kaya iniisip ko bawi nalang sa milk. Every time kasi makikita sya isa namin kapitbahay lagi niya sinasabi stop na raw dahil nga nakakasira ng teeth. Nagtataka naman ako eh diba source of calcium naman ang milk so pampatibay din ng teeth. Mahirap po ba mag-glass training mga mommies? Ako pa naman hindi talaga matyaga :( short-tempered lang ako. I guess dahil wala naman ako iba katulong na maglinis sa bahay at mag alaga sakanya so konting dumi o kalat lang medyo naiinis na ako :(
