Re: How to wean to cow's milk?
The best way to wean to cow's milk is to have a kid who likes cow's milk. Not all of them do. My first wouldn't touch it and still hardly ever does. If your LO likes cow's milk, just replace nursing sessions with sippy cups or bottles of whole milk, and talk to your pediatrician about how much you should be offering over the course of the day. If you have a LO who doesn't like cow's milk, you have to either a) continue nursing (3-5 nursing sessions per day meets all your LO's "dairy" needs without you needing to use animal milk) or b) offer a wide variety of healthy, fat and calcium-rich solids (things like leafy greens, tofu, fish, etc.).
