  • ok well for goin off formula start with 1/2 formula and 1/2 milk. after two or three days go to 3/4 milk and 1/4 formula two or three days later have only 1/8 cup formula in a bottle then just a tablespoon by then he won't notice going to milk. now for the bottle
    do it gradula the same way. give him one oz of the formula milk mixture in a cup and tell him he can have his bottle after he drinks it. every two days increase the amount he must drink to get a bottle

  • If you haven't already tried it, try warming up the milk a bit in the microwave. It might be the fact that it's cold that he doesn't like. Then when he's used to that start giving it to him cooler.

    For the bottle weaning, try a couple steps...try one of those Nuby cups from walmart--it's got a silicone top and it's similar to the bottle....then once he gets the hang of that try a different type of sippy cup.

  • You could try Soy Milk or Goats Milk. My nephew didn't like milk so my brother had to try different kinds. I think he liked the Soy Milk. I think there's another kind too but I'm not sure what it's called.
