After 1.

Start subbing the whole milk for formula. First 1 oz milk, 5 oz formula and work up.

Or just cut out the formula if he takes milk. Drinking from a glass is fine. Then you don't have to wean off of the bottle or sippy.

I'm just not sure about the glass. I have to give him sips and he doesn't get much. It would be easier for both of us to have it in his sippy until he has the dexterity for a cup.

I mean put some milk and some formula in the bottle/sippy cup. Put 5 ounces of formula and 1 ounce of milk for a couple of days. Then put 4 ounces of formula and 2 ounces of milk. Then 3 and 3, then 2 and 4, then 1 and 5 and finally all milk.

If he takes his formula that way, hopefully by gradually changing what is in there, he will also take the milk that way.

You should definitely keep trying. How does he normally take the formula?

What we are doing with our 7 month old is trying to give him formula from a sippy a few times a week. It's hard because we want to do it when he is in a good mood and that's not usually the case in the evenings when we are home, so it is generally a weekend thing. We still have to hold it like a bottle for him, but he's getting more used to it. Daycare said they will give him formula in a sippy that we provide. He also only gets juice out of a sippy, never a bottle.

Try some different types of sippy cups--like the straw one maybe--and see if he does better with that. Just keep trying and he'll get there eventually. At a year old it is definitely time to start working away from the bottle if you can.

Quoting myempyreofdirt: I'm not sure why he won't drink milk from his sippy. He seems to really like it. Maybe because he expects water in the sippy? Should I keep trying it?

Quoting abra:If he eats well and drinks milk from a glass, you can just eliminate the formula.

Quoting abra:

As long as he is getting a well rounded diet and food is available, he will eat whenever he is hungry. :-)Quoting myempyreofdirt: Would he be getting enough if I did that?
