My ds really loves milk though, however he has a sensitivity to the cow's milk, so we don't want to over-do it. ... (5 replies)
... oz first thing in the morning, 4oz before dinner, and 8oz at bedtime. Our DR seems to think this is a fine amount for him. He eats so well and loves fruits and veggies. So he has a well balanced diet. ... (5 replies)
