If you're going to continue to bf past 1 year, as long as she's bfing 3-4 times a day, there's no need for any other 'milk'.  :)  My 2 1/2 year old DS nurses enough still so I don't even bother giving him milk.  When he does wean, he'll have 1% like the rest of us.  :)

NO cows milk til atleast a year..12 months.  NO bottles needed, work on sippy cups with water or juice or even BM, no cows milk til a year earlier can cause anemia.

I don't plan to do cows milk til atleast 18 months, no need anyways.

I plan to continue to nurse til atleast 2 and when nursing 3 times a day no cows milk or other source of calcium is needed...basically thats all cows milk has in it is calcium protein and Vit D all of which can come fromother sources!

If I remember correctly I introduced it to my first around 12 months and he still BF for a long time afterward.

This baby has severe milk sensitivities (I can't eat anything with milk in the ingredient list or he ends up screaming for hours) so I don't know if I will ever try cow's milk with him.

We don't do cows milk. My 2 year old is the only one who isn't allergic to it and he is still breastfed so I don't worry about it.

No need for cows milk EVER! We do rice milk but my DS is 16 months and is still BF so he gets water and sometimes OJ but will never drink cows milk.

You CAN introduce it at 12 months. Straight up, no mixing... I'm a big believer in starting as you mean to go on.

No sweat if baby refuses it. Mine didn't like it for a long time. Water is fine for hydration if you won't still be nursing.

a baby should only get formula or breastmilk until 12 months. after that if you want you can start cows milk, almond milk, rice milk, OR continue breastfeeding.
