Re: Cow milk vs Formula
My dd went in for a checkup at 8 months (the naturopath) and since she is underweight, the dr told me to put her on more solids. She actually is loving eating! But anyway, I also got some almond milk per mamalove's recommendation (she knows everything!), and have given her some in a sippy cup.
All my kids like the almond milk, it comes in original, vanilla and chocolate flavors. No dairy, of course, so that might be a good option for you. I found Blue Diamond brand at my Fred Meyer, it's pretty inexpensive.
