i asked a similar question the other day! most say by 1 year, since formula/breastmilk is their main source of nutrition throughout infant age. my son will be a year on the 19th and we were given the thumbs up to start the weaning process. he has self weaned off me, but still occasionally nurses once a day. what i'm doing for bottles: he usually takes a 6 oz bottle of formula, so I have reduced it to 5 oz, and added 1 oz regular milk. I have been told (by other moms on here) it takes about 1-2 weeks, but I am doing it slower since i'm a newbie at this LOL. but tomorrow I will do 4 oz formula and 2 oz regular mi, give it a couple days, and so on. supposedly it isnt that hard to wean to regular milk! the process is just to get them used to the new taste since many babies dont like sudden change.
