: 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 waited until they were a yr old, but 10mths is close enough. i used whole milk. but i mixed it with formula 2 oz and 2oz to get them use to the taste. if he starts getting funky diapers dont be alarmed, but throwing up shouldnt happen. good luck
