you dont need to do that. If he is getting more hungry (which they all do drink more as they grow) give him more formula. Formula has all the nutrition he needs as a baby. Whole milk does not, it may be high in fat, but does not have all the nutrients as formula. When he turns 1 then it is ok to switch to whole milk as long as he is growing healthy.

No, no, no. Do NOT give a child cow's milk until they are one year old. You not only deprive them of essential nutrients and potential malnutrition, you can take away whatever iron stores they have, make them very ill, and set them up for a lifetime of digestive problems. At this age, your child should only get breastmilk or formula.

NO YOU CAN NOT START COWS MILK AT 4 MONTHS!!! Your baby would be VERY sick if you did that. He is hungry because he is a baby. Formula or breastmilk until your baby is 12 months old!
