At what age did you switch your baby over to milk? Or if you haven't yet, what age do you plan to? Will you choose cow's milk or soy?

I started (gradually) switching dd over when she was 9 mos old, because that was the reccommendation at the time. When ds came around it had gone up to 1 year, but my doctor was still saying 9-12mos. I started switching him over at 11 mos old. We use cow's milk, whole until they are at least two years old, then skim with added calcium.

We switched Brandon over a couple of weeks before his 1 year birthday, and we use cows milk (whole) and still do.

My Daughter is allergic to cows milk os we give her soy milk. We started mixing soy milk in with her soy formula at 10 months old. Now at 16 months old she drinks just soy milk.
