Just started whole milk coming off formula. Lo is 1 yr old. Do I need to put iron drops in it? Will baby have any common problems with the change over? Can he still have his 6 oz bottle filled with whole milk at bedtime..will it keep him full like formula?..any tips would be great

At 1 yrs old the amount of milk the need goes down to 12 to 16 ounces daily. They are now getting most their nutrition from food. So pretty much a glass of milk at each meal is all he needs. If he has not started using sippy cups yet I would do that. For night time if you do a bottle it is best to do water as milk left on the teeth causes them to rot. You do not need to add iron to the milk. This also he will be getting from his food. As for keeping him full food is now doing that not the milk.
