We transitioned about 2 weeks before Kohl's first bday. I gave one milk bottle a day.Now we are only using milk and he is doing fine. We use whole milk-it is very important to use whole milk for babies as the fat in whole milk is VERY important for brain development.

You might check with your Dr. Ours told us that as long as her diet was well balanced, Alyssa could do 2% instead of whole milk. They are "changing" what they recommend because Americans have so much added fat/calories other places. We did mix with formula, adding more and more milk, then ran out of formula. Alyssa took to it really well! Weaning from a bottle to sippy cup is next here!

We started on the day she turned 11 months adding 2 oz of milk to her formula and would do so each week until we got up to 8. I also eliminated the bottle at the same time so I would replace a bottle feeding with a cup instead. Now we're bottle and formula free.
