  • The correct answer is when you and your pediatrician are comfortable with making the switch. My boys were put on milk at 9 months. I know other moms who had to keep their kids on formula longer because of dietary and weight gain problems with the toddler. Another one who had to keep her son on special formula because of severe food allergies.

    You and your doctor are the two who should be speaking and deciding when the switch is best.
