  • I didn't give it until she weaned. If she would have taken formula, i wouldn't until a year

  • I did it. My son had no problems and my daughter got constipated. They were both like 9-10 mos old and I just wanted to see if they would like it.

  • We started at 9 1/2 or 10 mos. She didn't do well with whole milk, but we switched to 2% and she keeps is down and she is a good eater. I wouldn't do it unless you know the babies iron level is high and the baby is a really good eater. My LO will eat anything I put in front of her. No neg effects and the pedi actually suggested it b/c she knew we were having a hard time buying the formula b/c it is expensive.
