don't think so considering there are breast milk banks out there.

Well at a year old, if she's been on formula all this time, I kind of think it is :oops: Like, why start breast milk NOW, after all this time? I just find that odd. Almost all one year olds have a rough transition to cow's milk.

I don't necessarily think its weird but I would need to know for a fact that she is clean. Also, wont it be even harder to get him on milk if he starts drinking sweet breast milk? He has to switch eventually.

Crap I wish I read the OP better. I'd continue trying to give him milk. He's been a FF baby, why not continue formula?

This.



I would never give my child someone else's milk without knowing that it has been tested and cleared.

I don't think so.
My SIL does it for my niece (but she's only 6 months) and is lactose intolerant and has a milk protein allergy.



I would try maybe almond milk before you try breastmilk.

milk has been tested she was a just gestational carrier for another couple and recently had the baby. she does not do drugs or drink or smoke I know these things for a fact. also Dominick was bf for almost 7 months. I could not keep my supply up pumping he was two months premature and would not latch
