I did it the same way Acon did though later because I hadn't realised with dd1 that I could introduce cows milk as a drink before 12 months. DD2 is 8 months old and I think from about 9 months I will look to swap one afternoon feed for cows milk then start to wean her daytime feeds gradually. We use full fat jersey cow's milk as its more nutritious and better for them
Oh, shes 12mth on Sat.
I was breastfeeding, so obviously couldn't mix it, although I still wouldn't if I was bottle feeding tbh. I just dropped a feed and replaced it with cows milk, starting at around 9mths. a few weeks ago I dropped the night feed, replaced with a bottle of cows milk then a few days ago did the same for morning.
We are now aiming on dropping the afternoon bottle for a snack and maybe beaker of mik to sip on as shes not eating dinner.
We've had no issues with the swap.
My DD will be 1 on the 29th, and at the moment I give her cows milk for all bottles apart from the bedtime one, where she still gets formula (and only because when i gave her cows milk she woke up in the middle of the night for more, maybe coincidence but dont want to risk messing her sleeping up!!). With DD1 i just changed her one day onto cows milk and never looked back!
im the same my lo is 11 months and im not sure how to go about it, i think illl start offering a little bit mid afternoon, then swap morning bottle first for a few days to check for any reaction/sore tummy etc then swap night time bottle.
what im confused about is when changing to cows milk, should we keep givin a bottle or change to beakers as my lo drinks water out of a beaker but not her milk, this has resulted in her dropping her afternoon bottle as she obviously wasnt fussy for the milk and just liked the bottle- prob for comfort. so do we go the whole hog or keep the bottles
hi i have 2 kids 1 is 6 years old other is 6 months so been here with the first i took of formula on her 1st b-day and started cows milk which she reacted with badly as their are alot of allergys in family so then we had to use follow on milk which she had till she was 2 but my advice would be just do it dont think you need to wean them of formula hope this helps.
LO is 12 months in 2 weeks - has been getting cows milk from 6 months in his cereal and lately in his up during the day. Do i just stop formula altogether or would i give him for example formula in morning and cows milk at night to get him used to it? need to buy more milk and not sure what to do - stop it or wean him from it - thanks
