Hi Pixie. I listed a little information below that may be helpful;
Q: Why is milk called skim, 1%, 2%, and homogenized?
A: The names of the different types of milk refer to how much fat (by weight) is in the milk. Skim milk has less than 0.3% fat or less than 0.3g fat per 100g of milk. 1% milk has 1g fat per 100g of milk. 2% milk has 2g fat per 100g milk, and homogenized milk has 3.25g fat per 100g milk.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that infants remain on breast milk or formula until one year of age. The academy also advises whole milk, rather than low fat or fat free milk, for children between the ages of 1–2. Babies need extra fat for growth, development and a healthy immune system.
I have had some friends who started their children on **** milk slightly before they turned the age of one with no problems. I would speak to your pediatrician and explain your situation to him/her. Being that your baby close to a year in age he may say it's ok, or advise you to wait one more month or two. **** milk is slightly (not a lot) more expensive than 2% and you can drink it yourself. It may be hard for you to get used to since it is a lot thicker than the 2%.
Goodluck to you........let us know how you make out.
