Should I wean slowly off of breast milk?

Mileage may vary. Depends on the child's eagerness to embrace other foods, and on your ability to continue nursing. Stopping abruptly is mainly harmless, and some children do it on their own when they are able to express preferences. For others, slow weaning may be easier.
Breastfeeding. You have to do whatever works for you and your baby, there is no right or wrong way to do it.
Maybe. This helps prevent breast engorgement for you. Medically, there is nothing wrong with making a dramatic switch but this can be painful for mom.

Breast milk started drying up 3 years after weaning? Pituitary gland is normal. Will this cause hormonal changes and visual migraines?

No. I'm not entirely sure what you're asking here, as breast milk will usually go away after you're done breastfeeding. For it to go on 3 years after weaning is a bit unusual, but i'd be glad it did. If the pituitary is normal, then no, unless you're prone to migraines anyways you should be fine. Read more...

Is it ok to have cold breast milk?

Yes. It's traditional to warm breast milk or formula before feeding it to a baby, but honestly there's no particular reason either can't be served cold. Babies might not take to it at first if they're used to the warm stuff, and i imagine warm milk is more like nursing, so maybe more comforting... But there's no crucial reason to warm the contents of a bottle. Read more...
Yes. After my first daughter was born, i realized it was cumbersome to keep warming up refrigerated milk. After all, most older children (and adults!) drink cold milk so why not my baby. It turned out that she took it just fine. I eliminated one less step and still had a happy baby. Try it- you might find you have saved yourself a lot of trouble-especially you're away from home and you need to feed. Read more...

Is formula as nutritious as breast milk?

No. Formula is a close second to breast milk. There are many nutrients in breast milk that can not be "copied" and each mom's breast milk is ideally suited for her baby. Approved infant formulas do contain all the known nutrients that a baby needs to grow and stay healthy and should be used for the first year when breast milk can not be used. Read more...
No. In almost all cases, breastmilk is best. Baby humans are made to drink human milk. Formulas do a good job of imitating breastmilk. In a few cases, a mom's milk may have some unusual imbalance of ingredients (for example, not enough fat, or more salt than usual), or a mom may be on a medication that gets into her milk and is harmful to babies. In these cases, formula would be more "nutritious". Read more...
