Any Advice Will Help ..

So i'm a second time mommy ( Woot Woot ) and my first is turning 1 in just a few short days .. i know i should have started to try him on whole milk already so he could have gotten used to it by now , but i didn't and now i'm trying to switch him from powder formula to big boy milk any ideas or advice will be helpful to make this transition go a little easier and be less difficult

When I switched I kept it in the same bottle and warmed it so it wasn't that much different and he absolutely loves it.

Also I switched when he was one and a half.

I first started off by giving my son whole milk in his cereals and with his porridge. I still gave him a formula bottle at night but gave him whole milk in the mornings just using the same bottles as usual. He didn't seem to notice a difference and the change was pretty easy from my experience. I think it's easier now because they need less bottles so they're already used to drinking other fluids too.

yeah my son , likes to drink out of the cups we use rather sippy cups because i've tried those & of course he likes his bottles but he was never a big fan of the cereal with milk or oatmeal so not sure how the transition will be for him and what if he doesn't like it

I still used the bottle and mixed 1/4 milk with 3/4 formula and moved it up every week and a half and eventually got rid of the formula then shortly after I quit heating the milk except for bedtime

I started switching .y daughter at 10mo
Say she'd drink 8 oz of formula, I'd replace 1 oz with milk
So it would be a mix of 7oz of formula, 1oz of milk

I would add more milk and less formula every week until she was on full milk

i'll try that method , my son totally knows the difference between the two milks & wont drink the whole milk by its self

I started by giving him half the formula and filling the other half with milk. My son is almost 14 months and he won't drink any kind of milk by otself
