I'm sure everyone is told something diff from their dr's, but this is what our WIC office told us to do..at 11 mths we started switching my daughter from formula to whole milk so that by the time she was 1 she would be completely on it. They said not to do it all at once..start them out slowly and it would be less likely that they would get sick from it. So for example..she was drinking an 8 oz bottle of formula..we would switch that to 7oz formula mixed with 1oz milk..do that for a few days then do 6oz formula and 2oz milk..again for a few days then do 5oz formula and 3oz milk..and so on..till it was totally milk. It worked out really good and she had no problems.
