My son is just about 10 months old. Since he was about 6 months old he's been eating yogurt, and cheese, and has done fine with both. I've even given him a little bit of milk mixed in with his formula a while back, and he didn't get sick or anything. So now that he's only just about 2 months away from being one...when can I start putting a few ounces of milk in his formula? I think he'll be fine if I do it now..I just want some opinions...Answer Question

Never before 12 months. Formula was invented because cow's milk kills human babies. Giving it to an older baby can cause problems including organ damage that you may not be aware of for years.
When you wean from formula at 12 months there is no need for your child to start drinking cow or any other mammal milk. It's recommended that toddlers only have 2 toddler size servings milk products a day. Since they like yogurt, cheese, and foods with milk it can be hard to limit their intake just from food to 2 servings.
Milk can cause constipation, digestive problems, anemia, and other health issues. There is really no reason to drink milk.
