:shock: you do realize you aren't supposed to switch them before a year because there is extra nutrients that they need in formula? What you do with your daughter is your business but giving bad advice to someone else isn't cool

Ok I'm sorry I didn't realize you were in Canada. Still just because it's that way in Canada doesn't mean it's right. Is the OP from Canada? I assume not with the way she worded and responded to everyone. I find it hilarious that it states not to give any milk based food before 9 months either. Here you can give milk based foods as soon as they start foods yet they tell us to wait until a year to use cows milk. I still wouldn't switch even if I loved in Canada. Of course, my next child will breast feed longer than my first did :)
