Doctor:There is no standard guidelines or restriction for particular food.
Doctor:Therefore I cannot give you the specific limit of milk drinks per day.
Doctor:However if your son is only drinking milk then it needs to be changed.
User:we feed him with around 300 to 350 ml of milk, is it ok if we increase it to 500 ml
Doctor:Perhaps you can add milk to other food products or milk shakes to provide him more nutrition.
Doctor:You could increase the milk, but not in the expense of reducing other food.
Doctor:He needs to be fed with other food to make it a balanced diet.
Doctor:If he is eating a balanced diet, then increasing milk quantity is fine.
