Reply to Switching to Whole Milk

The days leading up to drinking only milk, we tried mixing formula and milk but he didn’t like it. He didn’t like drinking plain milk by itself too. Rather than wasting formula, we just finished the formula and tried to find ways for him to drink milk (smoothies, chocolate milk). We just dropped bottles at that point too since he was drinking smoothies and chocolate milk. So we just offered milk in a straw cup with meals. And before bed. He drank as much as he wanted. Which ranged from 6 oz to some times 16 oz a day. Pediatrician advised us no more than 24 oz of milk a day though.
