Is It Better For My Baby To Drink Whole Milk Or Formula
Formula, but costs $: A 1 year old baby can switch off of formula and start whole cow milk. Formula is somewhat more nutritious but is much more expensive. A baby who is a picky eater and eats little solid food, or has almost no variety in his choice of solid foods, will probably not get enough iron and vitamins from his diet. Such a baby may be better off drinking infant formula until 18 months of age. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My baby is 11 months..When can she start to drink normal milk?I mean whole milk, no more formulas...Thanks
At 12 months, when : You can wean to a doubled-handled, open-mouthed cup. Limit milk & milk products to 16-21 oz./day to avoid constipation & iron-deficiency anemia. If you give juice (not recommended) limit it to 4-6 oz./day. Since the same muscles used for eating & drinking are used for talking, use a "commuter cup" if you feel you need a lidded one. Sippy cups keep the tongue forward in an immature sucking position. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My daughter turns one today. How should we transition her from formula? What type of milk should she drink? Whole milk?
Whatever suits you: The average kid will easily switch from one to another when offered. Some are put off by the change in flavor & some parents to a half & half for a while until they can go to full strength. Whole milk is preferred until 2, when brain growth slows & a reduction to a low fat or skim will not deprive the brain of needed building blocks ( the brain uses cholesterol as insulation for nerve wiring). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My daughter just turned one year old should I stop the formula and shift to regular whole milk? And how much milk should she be drinking per day(ml)?
Milk: It is recommended to switch to whole milk at one year. The recommended amount is 2 cups a day (to provide adequate vitamin d) but not much more. When kids are "milkaholics" they actually can become iron deficient. I'd shoot for 2 cups (16oz) per day and stop there. (in a cup - get rid of the bottles too.). ...Read more

1yr old will only drink whole milk..No table food, sometimes baby food, no water or juice. I need advice on feeding. She cries bc she is hungry. :(?
It's either a neuro-: developmental disorder with delayed self-help & oral-motor skills or a bad habit Stop all bottles & juice; give water for thirst. Limit milk to 16 oz./day from an open-mouth cup at sit-down meals. Let her finger-feed 1 tbsp. of each food for 10 min. before offering help. Don't nag or beg. Ignore protests.Take a developmental screen from firstsigns.org to her 1-yr. medical & dental check-up ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Possibly : There is no consensus on this & research studies show conflicting results but i say more water & less milk! i believe cow's milk is the perfect food for baby cows but not for adult humans! if you do drink milk i strongly advise choosing rbgh-free & ideally organic milk from grass-fed cows..

Yes, unerweight.: Your calculated BMI is 17.9 which is considered "underweight." If you have other family members who are built like you, this might be genetic. However, it's a good idea to see a doctor to be sure there's no medical condition preventing you from gaining weight. If you're healthy, a combination of adequate calories & protein, combined with weight training should help. Gad you love milk! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
