Must we stop feeding formula to an infant right on his/her first birthday?

Answer: 

No, you may continue formula during a transition period during the 13th month. If formula is needed for a longer period of time, request that the parent obtain a physician's statement. All changes in infant feeding should be gradual and should be started only when the child is developmentally ready. If the infant is not ready for a change, then discuss this with the parents and develop a plan for gradual change to suit the infant's individual developmental needs.
