Can my 3 month old son drink 2% milk?

I have already done some research on it and a lot of people said it was ok if he was handling it fine. My WIC office set up an appointment for me to go to and never told me about it, so now I don't get formula benefits anymore. I just got home from grocery shopping and was "pleasantly" surprised to find that I no longer receive my monthly formula voucher... He has half a can left, but I have plenty of regular milk. Would it be ok if I temporarily gave him milk until I got this thing sorted out?

NO!!!!!! Your child needs formula. 2% milk does not have the fats needed for the healthy development of your child.

No. As you're not breastfeeding, he needs to be on formula until 12 months. Regular milk doesn't have the right level of nutrients for an infant. I would contact the WIC office and explain your situation.
