At what age did you switch your infant/toddler to regular milk?

 DD is about to be a year old, and DH and I were discussing this last night. So I was just curious when everyone made the switch from breast milk or formula to milk.

a week after he turned one.  He was on soy milk the first 10 months, then we switched to regular formula then we finished that supply and then we started giving him regular milk....

11 months but only because she self-weaned from the breast...otherwise, she would still be only getting 'momma's milk'

We switched him from formula to whole milk 2 weeks before he turned one.

I started my kids on milk around 9 months. But things have vastly changed since way back then. The recommendation is for a year now.

We didn't. My DD(3) gets enough calcium through vegetables and Vit. D from the sun. She's never had it except for a little bit in oatmeal to cool it off.

I'll quit nursing my daughter when she can explain to me the homoeroticism between Othello and Iago.

We went to the pediatrician for his 1 year check up 1 day after his b-day and switched that day.

We did a gradual switch at his pediatrician's recommendation starting 2 weeks before his first birthday.
