When do you plan on giving your baby milk? or when do you plan on introducing it?

I assume you mean cow's milk? I am undecided on that one as yet, but I'll most likely start the transition when she reaches her 1st birthday.

Probably mix it with her formula, and gradually decrease formula/increase cow's milk. I use it in cooking for her just now so I know she has no issues with it, which is good!

What are your plans on this?

We started transitioning Ben around 11.5 months - we gave him a little at first, then we'd swap out one of his bottles at daycare (he was exclusively breastfed, so that was just one less pumping session for me!), then around his first birthday, we gave him only milk during the day, and he nursed first thing in the morning and last thing before bed. Around 14 months, he switched to 100% milk only, no more breastmilk at all.

many thanks to trish for this cutest of siggies!

Straight milk, probably 11 - 12 months. But Joel has eaten things with milk in it already, like Cream of Veggie soup, etc. He has no issue and I'm not really worried about it at all.

(Especially since the so-called 'experts' are now saying that it doesn't help stave off allergies to avoid those foods, lol)

Seems to be 1yr old is the popular age!

How will you transition? Will you put it in cup or bottle?
