No not at all. That is how you wean, slowly substitute feedings for cow's milk (or formula if the baby is under 1).

i just wanted to say.. that i think its great that you breastfeed your baby until age 1! i tried to with my last baby and only made it to 6months... i dont see any thing wrong with giving your baby cows milk if your baby is one now.. should be fine, better then giving your baby formula. good luck :)

lol no not at all thats what i am doing now, even at 6 months of age i was doing that with my little girl.

its fine if she gets the runs try watering down the cows milk , some kids have a reaction. but mixing them is fine :)

sorry all- what i meant was giving breastmilk and cows milk at the same time is there any reaction.In the morning i give breastmilk, at midday sometimes breast or cows milk, then at night time he has fully cows milk - by having the two does it affect his little tummy

Quoting bianca:

no not at all, my little man is 14 months and im trying to wean him onto the bottle/ sippy cup. just add half milk and half water. my little one is lactose intolerent.


that is how i did it with my 16mth old.. she has been off the boob now for almost 2 mths now.. but basically just replace the milk for when you would normally nurse.. and take it a few days to a wk at a time to get use to the change over...
