How funny we all say the same thing.

My daughter had the same problem switching to whole milk.

It took a little over a week to make the switch

Day 1
12 oz bottle-I would make a 12 oz bottle and pour out 1 oz and then pour in milk.

Day 2
I would try same thing but add 10oz formula and 2oz whole milk.

That is if the day before went well.

If she doesnt immediatly notice-make the next change on the next bottle.
If she would fight it I would move back to the previous bottle that she accepted.

I did this until she was fully did the switch. Some days she would stay at the same level for 2-3 days until she was use to it.

I also did this to later, to switch her from whole milk to 2% or lowfat milk.

Good Luck

When i switched my kids, i would do 1 ounce of milk and like 6 ounces of formula for a couple days, then increase the milk and decrease the formula. (2 ounces of milk and 5 ounces of formula) That is the way my pediatrician advised me to do it. Good luck.

I would mix it with the formula increasing the milk, using less formula every few days. This is what I had to do with my oldest son.

Our pediatrician said to start gradually with one ounce of milk mixed with formula for one week, then two ounces milk etc..until she has all milk. Good luck.

When I switched, I started by mixing the two so the transition was seemless. 25% milk 75% formula, then 50/50, 75/25, and then all milk. Maybe the taste difference is too much.
