Well done. From what you say your baby is eating well and with the night time milk drink ,is consuming adequate amounts of calcium in his diet. Managing his dairy allergy is a challenge you have managed well. He may be too tired towards the end of the day to be bothered with milk drinks. Maybe ,instead of offering a night time milk feed he could benefit from having milk around middle of the day This would mean he is not having to consume milk , solids, and more milk in a short space of time, just before bedtime. Babies at 11 months for many reasons will refuse milk. He may be tired, needing on average 2 sleeps a day of 1.5 hours each . He may be inquisitive and independent, too busy to feed. It can be a challenge to feed babies at this age. It requires creativity such as when you have been adding your breastmilk to his cereal. For example his formula can be used to make custards, creamy pasta sauces....
Keep persevering with milk feeds.
