  • As long as she is eating really good during the day, I wouldn't be to worried. You could even get some infant vitamins and add that to what she likes to drink.

  • What is she wanting in place of fornula?

    That would help, it is recomended that they have the formula the first year, it really is better for them, but my DD drank mainly fortified soy milk at that age and she is fine.

  • If it's available in your local grocery store, try some Moo Magic. It's a powder (packaged in stick packs) that you add to milk. It's sugar free, no scary artificial sweeteners, and is loaded with vitamins. There's yummy flavors like chocolate and banana, and it mixes easily with formula. Both my girls love that stuff.
