Please do not give chocolate milk as an attempted means of “nutrition.” Here are the ingredients from a typical chocolate milk (this one is nesquik brand):

Nonfat Milk with Vitamin A Palmitate, and Vitamin D3 Added, Sugar, Less than 2% of Cocoa Processed with Alkali*, Calcium Carbonate, Cellulose Gel, Modified Cornstarch, Carrageenan, Salt, Gellan Gum, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Cellulose Gum.

So many troublesome ingredients here. And it also has 37 grams of sugar.

My one year old never liked formula. Now that he's a year, my doctor said to switch to milk and he needs to drink 16 oz of it. I've been trying to give it the last few days and he just won't have it. He eats solids, he loves water but he just doesn't like milk. I asked if I can give toddler formula instead, which he takes a little nicer than regular milk, and the doctor said no, just milk.

what am I supposed to do if my baby just doesn't like it? I can't force him to drink. I've tried in a bottle, sippy cup, with a straw.... so now he's not even drinking water because he thinks every time I'm pushing the milk.

any tips or advice?

Fire the pediatrician.

Or, at least, find a nutritionist to ask these kinds of questions to and rely on the pediatrician to answer the purely medical questions.

(Oh, and if the doctor offers parenting advice, please ignore it. Medical school does not confer any parenting knowledge.)

Oh when will pediatricians realize that milk is so processed that the protein from milk cant even be digested in a human body.
For the most part, milk creates so much mucus in our bodies and yogurt has so much sugar so the bad outweighs the good. Check the ingredients.

I recently came across a study about calcium in dairy. The study concluded that milk and dairy consumption did not to help the calcium levels in the body. (I believe it even stated that people who ate lots of dairy are at a greater risk for osteoporosis)

Okay okay, no chocolate milk. I actually mixed the toddler formula with some milk and he seemed to like it. I think that’s what I’ll do. That way he’ll get the best of both hopefully. I wonder if instead of mixing the powder with water if I can do milk. Anyone know that?

What reason does the pediatrician give for recommending milk?

You'll end up with a very high calorie drink.

If you can get him to drink the equivalent of 8 oz. milk, mixed with the amount of power used to make 8oz formula (which should yield about 8.5 oz total) then you can be free to give him water the rest of the day, as you have gotten the equivalent of 8 oz. mils and 8 oz. formula into him.

Why the urgency to drink milk? My kids were all allergic to milk and grew up fine. Is there a specific nutrient her missing? There are many other types of milk. Also, Whats wrong with formula?

You might also give him a stomach ache.

Stop blindly listening to an outdated doctor (oh if I could tell you some of the ridiculous advice specific to various conditions that I've gotten from top specialists. They really don't teach nutrition in medical school) and start doing your own research starting with some of the wise advice here. Milk isn't good for any human. I didn't give it at all to my baby and barely let my toddler have it, I wouldn't buy it at all except for dh. Nothing will happen if you use water.

DD was lactose intolerant until she outgrew it around age 9. She's fine. Almond milk has tons of calcium in it. One ounce of cooked wakame seaweed has more calcium and other vital nutrients than 8 ounces of milk. It's also a really fun finger food. Toasted nori strips are also a healthy snack with lot of calcium.

If your child is "failure to thrive", then get to a QUALIFIED nutritionist, and leave the doctor for shots and basic check ups.
