Remember, toddler's are not sophisticated with varieties of foods like most adults. Consider creative ways to introduce food items.

My daughter turns one today. How should we transition her from formula? What type of milk should she drink? Whole milk?
Happy Birthday Girl!: Well, you may get different answers because there isn't one-right way to do it. 2% or whole milk--some would argue whole milk is better--but in general they don't need whole milk (us is too fat as it is). Any how, mix some milk in the formula and increase amount of milk over a couple of wks so she won't notice too much of a change. Some kids change over without having to mix. Congrats & good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Milk intake: I wouldn't necessarily say that this would cause "calcium overdose" because the body can get rid of excess calcium, but if you need to gain weight, there are other, more well-balanced ways to do it, such as with protein powder supplements. Whole milk has a lot of fat, which can add calories, but not necessary in a healthy way. I would consult with your primary care doctor for suggestions. ...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
