  • All of my kids were off the bottle and formula by a year old. My doc told me that I could start milk at 1. I did not have any problems getting any of the kids off of formula!

  • Formula won't hurt a 1 yr old. You can put him on milk and phase out the formula as fast or as slow as you want. Use your own best judgement, you know your child, trust yourself! :)

  • My oldest was on milk by 1, I started her on it around 9 months. My second was on formula until about 14 months. Milk did not agree with her for a while, I had to ease it in.

  • My son is turning 1 at the end of the month also, but his 1 year checkup isn't until the 1st week of Nov. I'm going to wait and talk to the doc first. But I am excited to get him off of formula. It's so expensive! I do give him milk with meals already though, so he can aquire a taste for it. He likes it.
