Hi, this is my first time to post here. I searched for info on my question, but didn't see a direct hit. Sorry if it's been covered. It's funny. I've gained great confidence about financial management from the CC and LBYM boards, but it just occurred to me that I might gain parenting confidence from this crowd. This board is now a favorite. To the question...

We have a 20 month old who takes an hour EVERY meal and rarely eats the recommended amounts. She never drinks enough milk. She's in the 25th percentile for her weight. I think I shouldn't be concerned, if she's continuing to gain and maintaining at 25% or better. I've missed the last nine months of her (due to deployment) but wife says it's been like this for quite some time. More reason to WORSHIP her for taking care of this prize while I was gone.

Anyway, any suggestions for motivating baby to drink her milk beyond repeating ad nauseum "Drink your milk, sweetie"?

Thanks,
g
