What milk after formula
So, my ds will be one in two weeks. I not sure I want to switch right over to dairy milk. Formula will be ending though. He's a really good eater and I'm not worried about him getting that extra nutrition. Though I'm having problems as to what milk to switch him to. Soy milk is a GMO product, I heard Coconut milk has a lot of sugar in it if bought in the store. I have heard good things about hemp milk but, i want something somewhat close to cow's milk. Goat's milk is a choice but, not sold in my grocery store. Would have to find it and make an extra trip to get. LOL What milk alliterative do you drink?

Re: What milk after formula
We use cow's milk here.
Goat's milk is a great alternative. Do you have a Kroger or Kroger related (Fry's, Dillon's, Fred Meyer etc) because they have it in the organic section.

Is there a reason(allergy in the family or something?) as to why youre not sure about just starting with cows milk? Totally nosey I know but I always love to hear ppls reasoning about things. Ive learned a lot-or gained a lot of food for thought-over the yrs by being nosey :giggle:

I switched the girls to whole cows milk right around their 1st bdays. I plan on putting ds on whole organic cows milk around his 1st bday as well.

Sorry no help here. We did a mix of toddler formula and cows milk. We were going to do whole milk, but my pediatrician said 2% was fine for him because he was a big boy and didn't need the whole.

We slowly mixed formula and organic whole milk. I would check with your pediatrician just to make sure others have the right nutrients, fat content, protein, etc. I really like almond milk and I've heard it is fairly easy to make on your own...

If there is no medical reason, you should just try organic cow's milk. Or just regular cow's milk. Full fat/whole.

I used Baby's Only organic toddler formula, slowly adding organic whole milk until i was using 1/2 of each. Right around her 2nd birthday I replaced the toddler formula with organic fortified soy milk, and slowly switched from whole to 2% milk.

I've wanted to try some of the other milks, like rice or almond, but they are missing a lot of the nutrients found in dairy or soy, especially protein, so read the labels carefully.
