Switching to Milk from formula early

Marsha - posted on 09/08/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




My little guy was born at 34 weeks and 2 days he was a healthy size of 5. 12 so big for his age and spent 2 weeks in NICU, we have had no problem with him very active and growing well. Last week started to eat table foods and Gerber graduates. We are almost out of formula and I was thinking of switching him to milk, he turns 1 in 3 weeks, My oldest had no problems switching to Milk she took it like a champ didn't even have to mix it with formula. Was wondering if anyone else did this or if I should wait?

Thanks in advance

My sister switched her son over to milk early also, thou she did it a bit earlier than you are. N there's no problems that she ran into. She was running low with her BM supply, so she casually switch him over. I would do the same if I was you, Just try a very little bit maybe 2 oz of whole milk one day, then 3 the next , so on n so forth. If he doesnt have any currently allergies and nothing happens happens the first few days of trying those little amount of milk I'd say by a week you could probably have him completely on whole cow milk.

Or you could just call your pediatrician and ask to see what they say :)

Good Luck
