Do you plan on starting whole milk when baby turns one? If not what do you plan on giving baby? Will you continue to breastfeed or will you switch to toddler formula?

I will slowly transition Jacob to whole milk. With Jackson I would mix breastmilk and whole milk until he got accustomed to the taste of whole milk. I think I will give whole milk during the day and try to continue breastfeed at night and see how that works for us.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Hadn't really thought about it, but your plan of mixing breastmilk and whole milk makes sense.

I give him a little sometimes now because he loves to drink anything and everything so I think I will just start increasing it a little more each month as he turns one

I will start gradually introducing it at about 11.5 months- that's what the pedi recommended and it worked well with Chase. We also wean from a bottle at this time too so milk is only in a big boy cup

Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!

I'm really not sure what we are going to give Jackson after breastmilk. We have been researching and we aren't really ok with Cow's milk. He basicall needs three things that cows milk provides: fat, calcium, and vitamin D which we can supplement through other means so basically we are still up in the air about it! LOL
