  • They say you should wait until at least a year for whole milk because a great deal of their nutrition is still coming from liquids. I would wait, but you can ask the doctor.

  • you can give him a little juice.. not a lot.. maybe 4 ounces a day max during dinner, or lunch. gerber juices IMO are the best, because they still have some of the nuitrients, without the added sugar, etc.

  • I wouldn't until it's cleared with the doctor. Ours had us switch the boys at 9 months to milk because they were eating a varied, balanced diet of table foods. But 7...and eating "pretty regular" isn't really getting all the nutrition from food yet.

    OH, and ours went to 2%, but they were (and still are) big guys so they don't need the extra fat.
