My 8mth.old dd doesn't seem interested in formula anymore.........

Should I switch her to whole milk now? I'm worried she's not getting enough nutrients. She eats baby food like a pro,but doesn't want her cup anymore!

  • Well if your worried she isn't getting enough nutrients now she definitely WONT be getting enough if you switch to whole milk now. At this point baby only needs 26 oz and you can do things like make a smoothie with bananas or strawberry (if no allergy) to get her to drink it.

  • I gave both of my boys whole milk--I would switch things up. Juicy Juicy ( 1/2 juice 1/2 water ) they drink that too. You should let the doctor know that shes not that intrested in the formula.

  • Maybe it is because of the cup.

  • She's been on the cup for awhile and she just now started to do this.
