I started my son earlier but I started with small bottles of warm milk during meals and kept using formula for in between...gradually switching all the way to milk. He loved his very warm too, almost hot...and loved it...it didn't take long before he wouldn't take the formula at all. Still loves it and he's 16...heh.

I just switched to milk but some people do like 50/50 milk and formula.

I just recently did this myself. I mixed it at first..... for a week or so..and one day at breakfast, I gave him straight milk, and things are good.

I mixed it 50/50 for about a week, then just switched over completely.

i just did warm milk with a dash of sugar so he would easily accept it... wouldnt formula in whole milk be too thick??

i just started giving my son a little milk everyday when he weaned at 15 months.  i was breastfeeding, so i didn't bother starting him on milk before weaning.  i started off slow, maybe an ounce or two with breakfast.  he didn't want milk at first, so i didn't push it.  he was about 18 months before he would drink even a whole cup once a day.  now he drinks 8-16 oz a day, depending on his mood.  sometimes he doesn't want it, and sometimes that's all he wants (even though i still cut him off after he's had 16 ounces).
