My son is 10 months old. I am out of formula for him till tomorrow. I didn't buy him more today because I thought he had enough to last him the night. Witch I would have but his sister woke him up by tripping up the steps.

He won't go back to sleep with out his sippy and he don't want water or his juice. I have 2% milk could I give him a little to help him go back to sleep or is he still to young?

If it is OK to give him should I get it up a little? And should I water it down or give to him as is?

I know you guys arnt doctors I am just looking for some opinions.How old were your kids when they first got milk

My kids are sensative to milk so I wouldn't personally. You may give him a bad tummy ach from it since its new. Usually with milk your supposed to wean down formula and introduce milk.

Give him some milk. It will be fine until morning.

Have you tried any dairy before? I started weaning my DS from formula and mixing with regular milk around 10 1/2-11 months and he was fine. If he's had dairy before with no issues I'd say probably okay just water it down a bit.

Not until a year old. Why don't you go now and get some formula?

Not until a year. Go buy some. One more reason why I breastfeed.

I would water it down a bit, and make sure he gets some juice or something tomorrow to keep from getting constipated but should be okay.
