Q.

When is the correct age to stop formula milk?

Hi there

My child is 15 months now and prefers normal fresh milk and fruit juice to her formula. She eats a multi vit with evryday. Her eating is very good she eats small amounts during the day and loves supper as it is usualy a cooked meal. I would like to know that if she is getting all of her food types is it ok for me to take her off the formula as she doesnt want it anymore.

I have threatened to do it but would just like a confirmation from someone that it wont be a problem.

Babies are usually changed from their formulas at 12 months,so you can certainly let your baby girl drink regular cow's milk now.
