Was wondering the right age to wean babies off formula?
Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have six children of my own. Note, this is not therapy, but advice. I hope I can help you though. I am not a pediatrician, but have raised 6 children. Most pediatricianS recommend taking a child off formula after the first birthday up to about 18 months.Baby's do resist change, so making it gradual might be helpful. Also, I wouldn't start the change until after the child's 1 year check-up. That allows you doctor to give his/her input. I hope that was helpful
