So yesterday my son had his 12 month check up and our doctor gave us the nudge to start weaning him off formula and bottles. She suggested maybe starting by diluting his bottles with cow's milk to ease him into drinking milk instead of formula. Today I tried this method, but it seems to me that with our son taking away the bottles cold turkey might be the way to go. He still associates bottles with mealtimes, so rather than having them along with his solid meals and snacks, he prefers to drink his bottles by themselves after he eats. Would it bad to just stop offering bottles and formula altogether and to start only offering him some milk in a sippy at meals and snack times? I plan on keeping his nighttime bottle for now simply until we establish a good routine during the day. If you weaned your child off formula, what was your method?
