So my son is 10 months now and has recently stopped nursing. Do I or should I give him formula now or what. He does however drink juice. He drinks 2 bottles of juice a day. Also he eats breakfast, lunch and dinner.

That is way too much juice for an infant. He shouldn't be having juice even once a day at this age... and when he does have juice, only an ounce or less of juice mixed with 3 or more ounces of water. If he's not nursing anymore (though I'D continue for at least 2 more months) then he really needs to be on formula 3-4 (or more) times a day.

As I said in my other post juice is empty calories and he should be on formula if you don't want to breastfeed anymore.
