  • I would still give her mostly formula for the next three weeks. One or two milk bottles are fine, but that formula is important.

  • I would just keep giving it to her. Only thing I would watch for is if she is still having bowel movements.

  • Only formula in the bottle, cows milk in the cup. That way you wean off the bottle as you wean off the formula.

  • I would try to give more formula than milk, just because of developmental purposes. You are very close to her birth day though so I wouldn't worry too much. Just do not give up on formula completely until her birthday. The formula has many more vitamins and minerals than the whole milk which is why it is suggested for a full year. Congratulations and happy early birthday to your daughter!

  • My daughter will be a year on August 13th. She has been drinking whole milk for the last two weeks. Her doctor okayed it since she is eating all solids and still nursing right before bed and once during the night. I also agree with put the milk in sippy cups and save formula for just bottles. That is what I did with my boys and it was really easy then to get rid of the bottle at a year.

  • Keep the formula goinbg till a year :) The bottles you can get rid of if you want to. If she drinks well from a cup. My son turned 1 yesterday and i am throwing out the bottles tomorrow :) They want the bottle gone by a year.
