My twin boys just turned a year old last week and we are in the process of weaning them off of formula. I have read and was told by our pedi that we need to give them whole milk but my husband and his mother (whom we live with) are insisting that it will be fine to give them the 1% milk that everyone else in the house drinks.
Im receiving no support from my husband on this as he is siding with his mother. I even got it in writing from my pedi that they need whole milk until age two. Any suggestions on what I can say to help convince them that they need whole milk? I don't want to deprive them of the needed fats they would get from whole by giving in and letting them give them 1%.
Any suggestions would be nice.
They are 24.11 and 26.7 pounds and both almost 30 inches tall. So they aren't skinny but I still think we should follow what the doctor says.
