  • formaula cost me roughly 100 a month and milk was about 30 in whole milk. I started weaning her to whole milk when she was 11 months old and by a year she was only on whole milk. You shouldn't be giving your child whole milk completly until they're a year. They need that formula because of all the iron they get and it should still be a main source of nutrition until they hit a year. I know it's cheaper to be on whole milk but I think the extra money is work my daughters health.

  • Yes, much. A $12 can of formula lasted my son 2-3 days. A $3-4 gallon of milk lasts him a week.
