I just googled your question. The answer was 2 cups of milk daily for a 2-3 year old. That is 1/4 of a gallon. Bottomline, that is way too much and it will also lead to childhood obesity, our fastest growing epidemic.
If its organic or generally high quality it should be fine. The normal, cheap milk can be VERY, VERY dangerous with all sorts of chemicals and hormones, depending on the brand. But don't trust me, look it up, it's pretty scary.
Yes that is too much, especially if it whole milk. Whole milk is full of fat. Besides that it can be very hard on the kidneys to filter the minerals out and can lead to kidney problems. I was drinking 3 quarts a day as an adult and my doctor told me to cut back.
Yes because even though milk has high calcium and can strengthen bones, it also has some bacteria and fat that can hurt you if you drink to much especially for a three year old it can damage younger people's digestive system. What kind of milk is it?
That is too much. That much liquid can KILL babies, because their bodies are small,(water intoxication, just Google it) and milk is not as good for you as water. And by the way, high amounts of dairy has been proven, in some studies, to cause bone damage (?) ( or so I heard) also is he drinking any WATER? Either way, this should STOP now.
I've never heard of anyone drinking that much milk in one day (I am only hoping it is low fat milk) .. and further, I wonder if that is a little wasteful. THAT is something only a pediatrician can answer for.
I am curious though .. about other liquids being offered to this child..Is he/she getting a sufficient amount of WATER. Even a child should be consuming at least 5 cups of water a day.
When would there be enough time in the day to drink the water he/she should be consuming on a daily basis?
