Transition To Whole Milk

we've officially made the transition to whole mike and it went very smoothly. DD loves if (then again she loves everything). She goes "mmmm" everytime she drinks it. My question is, do you girls spread out how you give your lo's milk throughout the day. I give her 8oz in the morning when she wakes up and 8oz at night before bed. None during the day. She eats a lot of calcium and iron so I'm not worried about that (ie. cheese, yogurt, cereal, meat, etc...) Also, she absolutely refuses to have any liquid in a sippy cup. Any input would be helpful. Thanks.

Is she drinking other fluids throughout the day? If so I wouldn't worry about it, but if not I'd try and get her to drink some juice or water in there too. My dd also drinks about 6-8 oz. in the morning and then at dinner as well, but she's drinking water all day long and I give her some V-8 Splash as a treat (plus she gets some extra veggies!) to make sure she doesn't get dehydrated.

yes, I forgot to mention that, she does drink water and juice during the day. She actually drinks a lot of water, she just refuses to drink it in a sippy. She is definetly not dehydrated. Thanks Erin.
