Q. #AskTheExpert .i son is 22 month and how much milk quality does he need?

Ramya Ramachandran Lactation Expert42 mins ago
A. Dear ma'am, total milk intake per day should not exceed 400ml per day. Too much milk intake can cause constipation and interfere with iron absorption. Also avoid feeding milk through bottle. Try home made almond milk, peanut milk, coconut milk which are more healthy and plant based.
