my baby girl is 9 months and is starting to refuse her formula during the day!!! she will drink juice tea and water but only wants her bottle at night? I am wondering mabey if shes trying to tell me she doesnt want it anymore or what? do you think 9 months is to early to switch to cows milk?

We got permission from my son's doctor to switch him to whole milk when he was only 6 months. He suggested giving him poly vi sol vitamin drops once a day also. We waited till he was 8 months to switch and he never seemed to have an issue with it.

i have a 9 month old also and i am going through the same thing..... i actually just asked the same question earlier so if you would like to read the responses i got they were very helpful!!! also if you are wondering about the nutrition in formula versus the milk my doc told me about this new milk they have out that has DHA and stuff in it. its soy milk and is more expensive than reg milk but is is way cheaper than all the formula!!! If you are also worried about the iron thats not in milk if you go to the store they have infant iron drops you can put in her milk!! good luck!
