  • generally around 10 1/2 or 11 months old give a tablespoon of cows milk to your kiddo every few days or so, just to make certain they wont be having an allergy from it. try to start weaning down the formula like the week of the 1st birthday then and vow to not buy another container. by 13 months you should be entirely done, in theory. good luck!
