: I am going to switch my son over to milk from formula. He's 10 mnths. I asked the dr today at his check-up she said to wait. But the broader his tastes are getting the less he is interested in formula. I don't usually go against what she advises but I think he's ready. So I need to know should I give him skim or whole milk and should I add vitamin supplements to his milk once a day. And should I use poly-vi-sol or similar.

: Thanks
I was told at this age they need the fat in the whole milk. We also have to warm the milk for ds to drink it, he won't take it cold. And we do the poly-vi-sol because he does not eat properly. I think at ten mos they may still be worried about the iron intake, research that if you can. Give other foods that have more in it. Good luck!
