So my baby boy just turned one and I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing. Is he still supposed to be drinking formula? If not (or if im supposed to be weaning him off of formula) what can I give him instead to put him down for naps? Also I know I'm supposed to switch off bottles for sippys but how soon? and I'm started to wean him off of binkies too, so far hes doing alright except for at night

no whole milk they need the cal's or there is toddler formula.



My daughter has a milk allgery and has to get peptamen jr because almond and coconut milk do not give her enough cal's...




Im waiting on it to come it.




I was told this by a GI dr last week.

At a year, usually its recommended to switch to whole milk. Water is best to be given at nap and bedtime of you are giving anything at all.

bootles were gone by 9 months with my son my daughter weened right at a yr. I threw them all away one day and never looked back she is fine now... Binky is another story, try water at night and not milk it can cause bottle rot.

Yeah I know about the whole milk I just wasn't sure about giving that to him to sleep... that would get a bit gross. But water was what I was planning on giving him instead but I wasn't sure if that was alright

The milk is no more gross than giving formula to go to sleep, imo.

You have to wean them off the formula onto the cows milk so their tummy doesn't get upset. Start replacing one oz of formula with cows milk.



We took the paci away at 9 months, just threw them out. It was bad for like 3 days and then he forgot all about it. We took the bottle at 10 months and I've never laid him down with any liquid but if you are give them water like someone else suggest.

How is it any more gross than formula? :?
Also, you can switch to sippy cups now. I think usually it's recommended to start the transition from bottle to sippy around 7 months.




(BTW, I totally misread the title when I clicked, lol, I thought it said '1 year old and donuts', haha)

DD was getting off formula at 11 months (half formula, half milk). She would not take formula after 12-13ish months. Time for more table foods, nothing hard and nothing too gummy. She took sippy cups at 12 months.
