Mommy Confession #67: My toddler doesn't drink milk. Not just doesn't drink milk. Has never finished a glass of milk. Ever.
When we transitioned from formula to milk, it didn't go well. Yes, that is an understatement. It went horribly.
We tried everything. Every type of milk -- fat-free, low-fat, 2%, skim, whole. Organic and non-organic. With Nesquik, with Ovaltine. Every flavor -- plain, strawberry, chocolate, vanilla. Made our own flavors -- chocoberry, vanolate, strawnilla.
She would take a sip. One meek little slurp, and that was it. It became a battle. It was turning every meal into a war zone.
And I then remembered the parenting advice we've all heard 103 times: pick your battles. So I did. And this wasn't one of them.
