Does your LO drink?? Whole? 2%? Something different??



Peyton had been drinking whole milk ever since we stopped formula. At her 18 month appointment her Dr said he typically doesn't switch a toddler to 2% until they're 2 but since Peyton is in the high 90th percentile for weight we could go ahead and switch her to 2% now, so we did! She already drank 2% when she was at my parents because that's what they have so she didn't care about the switch. I've even had to give her a glass of skim a couple of times because she was out and was begging for milk and sucked it right down, so she's not very picky when it comes to milk! lol

Mommy milk or 2%. At Kolbie's 12m appointment I was told since she'd consistently been over 90% for height and 75% for weight it was fine to skip whole milk, especially added to nursing.

The kids drink organic whole, but they don't drink that much milk really.

2%. We never even did whole milk with Abri. Her pedi said she was big enough to skip it, plus she still nurses a ton.

We just switched to Almond milk yesterday.

Before that it was a mix of Whole milk and formula still.

Whole milk here. Occasionally 2% if we run out. Hoping to make the switch soon though.

He's always had whole and i have a feeling he will for awhile since he's fairly small for his age. I go back and forth with buying organic for him.

Whole milk at home and 2% at daycare. I asked the pedi about 2% and she suggested sticking with whole since he is on the smaller side. I used to buy whole milk for daycare, but stopped. Our daycare provides 2% so I just let him have that when he is there. He is a total milkaholic and would drink it all day (and never eat) if I let him. His favorite time of day is at night, he sits with DH or I and snuggles while he drinks a cup of milk before bed.
