    My son is 9 months. He has been on solids for a long time. He eats just about everything that we eat. He is losing his taste for formula and I want to put him on milk. I know they say not until a year, but has anyone started their LO on milk early?

    No i was told at that we will discuss it at his 12 month appt. My doc said that milk is still to hard for their digestive system.

    I just talked to my doctor yesterday, at his 9-month appt. She said that milk is fine, but to still give him formula at some point during the day to help suplpement vitamins. As long as he doesn't have a reaction to it. He hasyogurt made with milk as well.

    My now 17 month old has been on whole milk since 8 or 9 months without formula. He was eating so much solid food that I didn't feel the need to keep buying expensive formula when he ate all his veggies, fruits, meats and everything. His doctor never had anything negative to say about his health.
