I have an 11 month old little girl who is starting to drink less and less of her formula and instead just plays with the bottle. She has 3 bottles a day (approx 8oz) with her breakfast, lunch and supper as well as a sippy cup throughout the day filled with water that she drinks from. Is this a sign to start giving her whole milk and transitioning her out of formula or should i consult with her doctor? I know they say it is best for babies to stay on formula until a year, I am just concerned she will not get what she needs to help her grow. Have any moms switched to milk earlier than a year? How did your child take to it and how did you transition them? Was it cold turkey switch or gradual?
