  • At about a year. Mine didn't like it much at first. Breast milk is sweeter so I added a little white grap juice to get them to like it.

  • Never. We never introduced it. It is the breast milk of another species, and is nutritionally unfit to be served to humans. Either keep nursing, or give the child water.

  • I offered it at a year. One of my babies still breastfed, as well, until 17 months. The other had already weaned himself at 9 months.

  • I didn't offer cows milk until I stopped breast feeding at 2.5 years. With my eldest, he stopped nursing at 10 months and I offered cows milk at that time. Neither of my children rejected it, but my youngest preferred breast milk lol.

  • I quit breastfeeding at 16 months. If I can recall, I think I started giving her cows milk a little bit before weening her off bm to get her used to cows milk. I got to where I was only breastfeeding twice a day, to only at night before bed, then completely did away with it. She loves cows milk now.
