Your 1- to 2-year-old child should drink 16 to 24 ounces of whole milk a day. While you’ll most likely have to work to make sure he meets the requirement, keep in mind that it is possible for him to drink too much milk.
If your child drinks more than two to three glasses of milk during the day, he may not have room at dinner for the other foods that he needs to round out his diet. (He needs plenty of iron-rich foods like leafy green vegetables and meat, for example, because milk does not contain iron.) So if your toddler’s thirsty, get him in the habit of drinking water throughout the day, too.
