View Full Version : Switching to cow milk question

02-23-2004, 10:48 AM
OK - I finally got my lazy butt into gear and threw some organic cow's milk into Sophie's bottle this morning. I did about 2 oz. cow's milk to 6 oz. formula. I didn't want to shock her little body *too* much.

She's drinking it happily while eating her Cheerios and "reading" her books as I type.

My question is: Do I only start out with one combo bottle a day or do I mix every bottle??

And what surprises should I expect or look out for - dipes, rashes, etc.

I've been slowly switching Nathan over. We started with 3 ounces of formula to 1 ounce of milk. I prepared 11 bottles at a time. Just yesterday I went to half and half. The only surprise I noticed was his poops are a little runnier (could be from a number of things) and they smell pretty bad.

I did just 2 ozs for a couple of days and then waited to see if there were any reactions. Then we gradually started increasing the ratio.

We had a terrible diaper rash with milk, so we are using lactacid for now. Will try whole milk again in a few months...
