    Formula for 12 month old?

    I unexpectedly need to wean my baby as I have bad asthma and needed to be on strong medicines.
    What is a suitable formula to give a baby that has only been exclusively bf still now?

    Will love to hear from you ladies out there, thanks

    I think at 12months you can just give your baby cow`s milk now.

    from 12 months, you can just give regular cow's milk. why have to wean him twice? too much work for my liking.

    hope you feel better soon!

    I had to wean my exclusively (except for solids and water!) BF baby at 12 months for medical reasons, and I switched straight to cows milk. Didn't see the need to start formula and have to wean from that, also.

    I can look up the drugs you need to take in the book, Medications and Mothers' Milk by Dr. Thomas Hale. This is the best book to find out if the medications are compatible with breastfeeding or not. Many doctors look up the drugs in books written by the dug companies which often give biased information to protect themselves from law suits.

    Just let me know the name of the drug.

    Best wishes,

    Dear Sarah,
    The drug is prednisolone 20mg a day.
    I am also on Augmentin and Ventoline inhaler on frequent basis. I think the latter 2 is acceptable, please correct me if I am wrong.

    At the same time, if I were to pump and dump, how long should I wait for the medicine to clear from body before resuming bf?
    (The prednisolone is a 3 days course)
    PS I suggested pump and dump to the hospital staff, but she just told me that I should wean as its best for baby!

    Dear Ladies,
    When you say cow's milk, do you mean the powdered ones in cans or the regular fresh cold milk from supermarkets?

    And what kind of brands have anyone tried please? thanks!
