Formula is reccommended for 0-12 months. He should be drinking whole milk or another suitable alternative. If he is a normal size and growing he is probably doing fine.

My daughter only wanted to nurse. When I sought advice, everyone said just quit. I was maddened at the lack of actual advice at the time, but when she turned 2 I did just that and it worked fine. You have to be tough!
