I've spent a ton of money on a sip, then a thrown cup of the following:
Almond milk- chocolate, vanilla, and unsweetened
Soy milk- chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, regular
is there anything else out there? I would love to try whatever it takes.
what I try to do is offer it to him the new milk in his same cup with a meal. he sips it, says "No" shakes his head, asks for milk. I tell him its milk and he screams and cries, asks for milk and I say- "it is milk! Look Layla is drinking it too!" Then he throws it.
I try again for the next couple meals then get concerned that he isn't drinking anything at all- even water and cave in after a day or two- giving him his whole milk back.
Then he doesn't trust me when I offer him a cup unless he sees what I pour into it. Smart kid. He even knows the difference between 2% and whole milk- he refuses 2% milk.
My daughter loves coconut milk. I would love for him to love that too (it would save me money!) but anything would make me jump for joy at this point. My daughter is vegan for the most part at 14 months old. She loves vegan food. I am trying to use her as an example with him - "look- Layla is eating the rice, tofu, mushrooms, and spinach- why don't you try it?"
Even my husband is being won over by all my vegan substitutions and baking. He is doing great and is pretty much there.
My son will be my last lacto vegetarian stronghold!
