Re: Starting on Cows Milk

We started cows milk a couple weeks before dd1's first birthday in a sippy cup. We never mixed it with anything, just straight whole milk. She liked it so much she pretty much self weaned except for night and morning nursing, so it was a fairly straight switch.


If he's doing well on all that other dairy, he would probably be OK but I would wait until a little closer to his birthday and instead of mixing it with formula I would use it by itself in a sippy once or twice a day and then just slowly increase the number of sippies with whole milk.
