My daughter is 1 years old and her doctor said to switch her to whole milk. I have been trying for 3 days now and she refuses to drink it. Any ideas?

Mix the formula like you usually would. (to make sure the ratio is still the proper one). It;s extremely important because too concentrated or not enough isn't good for the kid. Just make less than usual (4 ounces instead of 6 for example) and add the cow milk to the mixed formula until you get the quantity you want.

Thanks! If I use powder (Enfamil Gentle Ease) do I use the milk instead of the water or do I just add a little milk to the water and formula combination?

mix the whole milk with the formula and slowly increase the amount of whole milk. It will give her a chance to get used to the taste and also for her body to adjust to the change!
