My son is 13, almost 14 months old now, I mixed formula in with milk for a week or so to let him get used to milk, then took him off formula compleatly when I ran out. I also give him whole milk pretty much most all of the time, but when I am at other people's houses and grab him some milk it does not hurt if it's 2% or 1%. but like Karen Hill says, make sure he drinks mostly whole milk until he is 2, or until his physician says otherwise. Are you on WIC? You should go join WIC, it really helps you learn a lot of information about what foods your baby can and can't eat and until what ages ect. :)

I think whether it's 2%,1% or whole is mainly up to you. We've drank 2% and 1% since my son was born(but I didn't give him any milk til he was over age 1. You may want to mix it with formula(again, it's up to you) like 1/2 formula, 1/2 milk. My son never drank warm formula. He liked it cold.
What worked for me may not work for you, but this is what we did. Good luck hun!
