I'm far from being an expert-- but, having a 13 month old, and having done a lot of reading and discussion together with my wife, I don't think you necessarily need to go to formula. We were doing quite a lot of solid food by 9 months, and our boy slowed down his nursing naturally to just a couple of times a day. He's still nursing now at 13 months, and my wife is working on weaning, but the majority of his calories come from regular meals like we eat--chicken, veggies, fruits, yogurt, cheese, just to name a few things.

I'd talk to your pedi, too. And, eat more yourself!
