My first two had a lot of digestive troubles once they were on formula and baby food so we ended up cutting the formula out early. This little lady will be her own story, but I'm curious what the rest of you are planning on doing. When she's much older I'm thinking about keeping her on formula, at least a little each day, until she's ready for the toddler stuff so she keeps getting the added nutrients if she can handle them.
~Thanks Babydoll213 for my awesome siggie!~

Definitely at least a year then weaned onto whole milk, but she'll probably have to be on Lactaid whole milk like her brother.

We did formula for a year then the bottles went away. My kids both loved milk so that helped.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

She will do formula for at least a year. She may end up doing a "next step" toddler formula too, having such a sensitive tummy and reflux.
