  • is she weaning off you? or formula? Milk is a fast way to get calcium, but you don't HAVE to. you can offer her lots of food high in calcium or offer her non gmo soy, or rice milk. but anyways back to the post. what I with my son to wean him to regular milk, was replace a little at a time. so it was first 1/4 milk, then 1/2 then all milk. I gave the process about 2 weeks and it went very well. but sometimes I replace 4 oz of milk with 1/2 cup of yogurt with a meal, or offer him a good portion of tofu for dinner. as for solids, has she had any yet?

  • She's on formula & she's had some solids (potatoes, eggs, pasta, bites of chicken), I just wasn't sure if I should replace her bottle w/ a meal or incorporate it

  • she can drink while she eats her meal! nothing better than washing down food with a nice cold drink ya know? 1 is usually the age many babies love tablefood. so if she's tried it already you can take some off your plate or give her her own plate. sometimes I'll share my meal with my son, or make his very own dinner. my sons fave dinner is macaroni and cheese. he also loves the crust off pizza, and he likes tofu nuggets
