    When I was switching with both my children, We would take 2oz from the Normal 8oz bottle and subsitute that 2oz with Homo. after 2weeks to a Month we would change it to 4oz formula and 4oz Homo, if the LO didnt like the adjustment to the next level we would go back wait a week and try again, eventually we made it to straight Homo, Good Luck

    I just started to mix in about 2 oz of milk every 3 days taking away 2 oz of formula until I had only milk.

    I gave him dairy products first cheese, yogourt, cottage cheese etc, so that his body wasnt in such a big shock and then by the time he was around 10months he was completely switched and drinking 8 litres of homo milk a week

    We did the same, added some milk and reduced the formula. We did this for about 3 weeks before she was completely on milk.

    I started switching Shelby over around 10 months... she was already eating plenty of cheese and yogurt by that time too.. I added two ounces of milk for the first week to her 6 ounces and within three weeks she was switched over without a problem.

    I did the same as the other moms have already said with replacing formula with milk a few ounces at a time. DS already had been eating a lot of milk products when we switched to milk. He was fully on milk in a week with no fuss.

    We transitioned to milk at 12 months but could have easily done it a bit sooner I think.

    thanks for all your advice. I think I will gradually switch the milk, over a few weeks.
