Is it really better than whole milk? I feel like pediatricians tell you to switch to whole milk at a year for a reason but the toddler formulas do contain more nutrients. I started my son on toddler formula at 9 months (instructions say for 9-18 months) but was thinking about going completely to whole milk when he's a year. He's almost 11 months and right now. He's a picky eater and when he's teething he fights me at meal time and doesn't eat enough so I feel like he needs the extra nutrients in formula that whole milk doesn't have. How do the rest of you feel about toddler formulas vs. whole milk?Answer Question

I switched my Son cold turkey from formula to whole milk at one. He Loved the milk! No need to gradually switch. I would skip the toddler milk altogether & give him a multivitamin daily. That is what a Pediatrician will tell you. He should already be taking a vitamin anyway if he isn't.
