My daughter is 11 months old. For about a month now she has slowly started taking less and less formula, now she is hardly taking any. She screams and just wants baby food or real food. I'm wondering if I should put her on whole milk early and get vitamins from her pediatrician that'll help supplement what she's lacking from not having formula. Is this a good idea? I know that nothing can truly replace what they get from formula.. but my thinking is that it'd be better for her to get more whole milk and vitamins than barely any formula. I'm just kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place.Answer Question

Definitely offer whole milk now to her. I hope she is already taking a prescribed Vitamin from the DR. If not, she should absolutely have a daily Vitamin. Talk to your Dr. too. If she is eating healthy, less formula should be fine but supplement with milk & vitamins.

She can drink water. Cow milk is for baby cows, and humans don't need it. Like many other nutrients, and despite the claims of the dairy industry, plant based calcium is superior to animal based. While cow mild is rich in protein, the kind of protein that is contains is casein, while human milk protein is lactalbumin, with is easily digestible; more the 50% of casein isn't digested and can cause health problems later in life, like food allergies.
