When did you start your baby on homogenized milk? I know rule of thumb is 12mos but I've also heard that some start earlier?

We started in small increments at 11mo. Actually it was the last week of her being 11mo.

My pedi said 1 year and I think that's the right way to go.

I've started at 11 months with all my kids. I mixed half their bottle with milk once a day. Every week, I would make it more milk. By their birthday they would have one full bottle(or cup) a day. After that, it was easy to go straight to milk

I started at 11 months in small amounts and my bbg just got fully on whole milk yesterday she's almost 12 months, I felt bad just fully started her on whole milk it would have killed her stomach, my doctor agreed and said weaning was the best way to go

I had to change my first son to whole milk by 7 months, I couldn't afford the formula anymore.. And he's 3 and only weighs 34lbs. We didn't switch him over to 1% until he was 2.5 years old.

I can't stand dairy milk. The hormones the uncleanliness, yuck! It's so overrated and overused. I'm the weird mother that started mine on veggie milks at about 10 months along with their finger foods. Not much, just an ounce or two. If you insist on using dairy, I'd say wait till after they're past 1 year. Good luck ☺️
