If your child is willing, you can make the switch to fresh or UHT milk after they turn one. But here's why I chose to stick with formula milk anyway - it is cheaper, more convenient, and helps to greatly ease the mental load of modern parenting.
How do you choose which milk to give?
For the longest time, many parents have switched over to fresh or UHT milk for their children after they turn one. The primary reasons cited are often:
- It is cheaper
- After a certain age, a child's nutrition needs should be met by food rather than milk
- Many formula milk brands are high in sugars
For context, when Nate turned one, we also considered the switch, and started to expose him to both fresh milk and UHT milk across different brands to see which one he liked better.
Many of you have noticed that we're still giving Nate formula milk
