Shahnaz, what do you mean by your baby is very weak? Is she under the care of a doctor for a condition? If so, then it is probably best to talk to the doctor about what is best for her.

Peds drs do not recommend formula after age 1......milk with some fat (such as whole or 2%milk) is recommended starting at age 1 in America.

Follow what the doctor is telling you. MOST kids by 1-2 years old are on mostly a diet of solids, so going with regular milk is fine. I do know of at least one family where the child/children can NOT have solid foods regularly, so for them.... a special formula is what they need.



No one here knows what the particular situation is better than your child's doctor, so please follow the doctor's advice. If you doubt the doctor for any reason than please seek a second opinion, but go with doctors that are seeing and caring for your child over random women on the internet who are not aware of your child's specific issues.



Good luck!

If your doctors are telling you to use formula or pedia sure than that is what you should be using. I would also be consulting your doctor about how to get her to eat solids.

By the age of 2 a child is no longer in need of formula. Fresh milk is not a main staple of their diet either. It is a glass or so a day only with meals providing the nutrients her body requires. If she is on the heavy side the removal of formula from her diet will correct this. If she is thin though she is on formula I wouldn't change her diet at all until I spoke to her doctor about her health.

Actually, Sara, that is not QUITE true. Formula is recommended in some circumstances, due to risk of nutritional deficiency. I had a VERY tiny baby who struggled with weight gain in her infancy, and my doctor recommended continuing formula until she was about 18 months, at which point, her diet was far more nutritionally balanced. Failure to Thrive children often also have formula well beyond 12 months.
