  • I stopped around 12 months with my daughter and weaned her to cows milk. It is what my pediatrician recommended.

  • I stopped giving my daughter formula when she was 12.5 months old. I then switched her over to whole milk.

  • You should not give your baby cow's milk until after they turn 1 year because he or she could potentially have an allergy to it. So you should continue to give your baby formula until then.

  • At 12 months I started introducing cows milk and weaning off formula. I did this by slowly adding more and more milk to the bottles until they contained only milk

  • my son weened himself off the formula right before his first birthday..doctors say at one or after one is best to take them off but you can start as early as eight months if they are eating other things!
