  • my son got severely constipated even though i did the transformation as directed by doc. i ended up having to give him miralax for almost 2 years. now he is on 2%, takes multivitamins every day and poops just fine in his potty. he is 3 now.

  • my son didn't even notice. i didn't give him really warm bottles though, i gave him room temp bottles, so he didn't really freak out when i gave him milk.

  • We did 2% and there wasn't really any reaction to tell. I think they might have hesitated briefly then went back for more! lol

    When we did the switch, they were taking their formula right out of the fridge, already in a sippy. Just a little change in the taste for them. They didn't seem to mind.

  • Lots of snot and vomiting. Turns out he can't drink anything but either skim milk (with no hormones) or soy milk.

  • My daughter had no problems at all. I started giving it to her at 10 months so it wouldn't be a shock when I weaned and it wasn't the whole process went pretty smoothly.

  • My son has never had whole milk, we went right to 2% and by 5 yrs old he was on skim or 1% milk. Had no issues. Neither of us are big milk drinkers, only in other foods.
