Re: What are my options...12month old??

We kept DD2 on formula til 18 months. She did cows milk with her meals, and we gradually switched over to more and more cows milk about 16 months, but still did formula for bedtime and night bottles. At 18 months, my ped freaked on me that she was still drinking 16 ounces in the middle of the night, and we cut out the night bottles.

Kids don't magically not need nutrients just because they hit 12 months. IMO, it should be more of a gradual process. My kiddos are all peanuts, so they needed the extra fats and calories in the formula.
