My son just turned one today and is still taking two bottles of formula a day, one when he first wakes up and one right before bed.
My questions are these:
Should I discontinue these two bottles and give him only sippy cups of milk?? Currently,he does have a sippy cup of whole milk with his meals.
Or should I let him wean himself when he is ready?
He seems to enjoy his evening bottle more than his morning bottle. He also has a big bowl of cereal after his morning bottle. I think I may be able to cut the morning bottle and just give him cereal with a sippy cup of milk to go along with it(the cereal makes him thirsty).
I just wanted to know what other parents have done once their children reach this age. I will be taking him for his 1 year checkup on Friday, so I will also ask his doctor.
