When do you wean a child to whole milk?

My baby is now 1.5 years old and I would like to stop breast feeding.

Most experts don't recommend whole cows milk until at least a year of age. At a year and a half, it would be appropriate. As always, only introduce one new food at a time in order to be able to pinpoint any allergies or other adverse reactions.

Breast feeding is the best food for baby till he/she takes foods other than that. The maximum age limit is 3 years. You can decrease the feeding from 1. 5 years.

You may start to give a one year old baby whole milk. You may want to wean them slowely and start with Lactaid.

Whole milk can be given to babies after their first birthday. Toddlers often get picky about what they will drink, so it's best to introduce it as soon as possible.

Just like a bottle fed baby you would start giving them a half and half. I would also expect some digestive problems at first but that will taper.
