  • I tried a week before her first birthday. But she never liked whole milk, so soon after we tried 2% and she has been drinking that ever since.

  • Never. When we started milk (around 2) they we always drank 2%. It's the healthiest option for both children and adults...

  • My pedi told me to start introducing it at 11.5 months and then switch over to it from formula at 12 months.

  • We did whole milk from about age 1 (we switched around 12 or 13 months) until age 2, then switched to 1% low fat. Talk to your pediatrician, because the advice seems to depend on family history, the child's weight, etc. My son is usually around the 30th percentile for weight, but I know some kids were told to start low fat milk sooner than he did.
