When can I wean my baby from formula or breastmilk.

Weaning From Formula or Breastmilk

Most doctors recommend feeding a baby formula or breast milk until at least 12 months of age. This ensures that your baby is getting all necessary nutrients, and lessen the chances of your baby developing milk allergies. When you do switch, be sure to use whole milk until age two. If you have more specific questions, be sure to check with your doctor to know exactly what is right for your baby.
