Hi mommies!

Any suggestions as to how to transition from formula to regular milk?! My baby boy turned 1 last Thursday so we feel its time to introduce him to regular milk.

My daughter turned 1 on the 23rd of August. I started introducing milk to her at about 11 months old. She hated it at first, but now it's growing on her. I tried half formula half milk first, and then all whole milk. She now only drinks her milk cold lol. She's my picky mama. I also weened her away from the pacifier and cup before 1, so now she's a big girl!!! Good luck moms!!!

Well it wasnt much for us, we just kinda did it. lol We completely switched one day, and he did have to adjust to it but it only took like 3 days. I would recommend doing the same, its not hard on the little one and it was quite fast. Hope you the best!

Yea it seems like they are transitioning into so many things around that age. We took it one thing at a time, the pacy was first at 10 mo. then (the more advanced) sippy cup about 11mo, 11 1/2 transitioned to whole milk, then at 12 mo we completely took the baby food away. I was kinda obsessive back then to try to plan everything just right, but glad that we did it that way cause it worked out great for our boy. Im glad to be through that stage though lol having a toddler is so much fun, but they get so much more independent its kinda sad too.

Thank you Stacey! We mixed half formula half regular milk since he completely refused regular milk at first. We are going to increase the amount of regular milk in his bottle each week
