Changing to cows milk at 1

M will be one in 2 weeks, just wondered if you go straight into cows milk for drinks or should we introduce it slowly? He has been having cows milk in cereal for the past month or so with no problems. Thanks x

If he has had it with cereal then I think you can go straight onto it!

I gave L it slowly, first in cereal and cooking (say mashed potato) but when I gave it as a drink I gave it only in the morning for the first 2 or 3 days just to doubley make sure :smile:

Even if it's not a worry from an allergy point of view, I mixed 1/3 cow's to 2/3 formula for a couple of days, then 2/3 cow's to 1/3 formula for another couple of days before going to 100% cow's. This was to get him used to the taste as much as anything else. It is a very different taste and you don't want him to reject it just because it's so different.

It's also a good way of using up the end of the pot of formula as once you're on 100% cow's milk, you'll never use the formula pot again!

Thanks for the suggestions I will certainly do that. Sounds sensible to me. I had a sad moment today buying the last tin of Aptimal I will probably use - where did my baby boy go??

I don't know what you are talking about Glitzy, your boy is not going to be one for ages. He's only just been born!

I have to say I did the oppsite Glitzy! T had been having full fat milk in foods, breakfast etc for ages, so I just changed him onto full fat in his cup as soon as his formula had run out- it was a little while after his first b'day though, i think he was about 14-15 months. Don't think he even noticed the diff in taste- certainly never complained about it if he did!

I did the same as Rose, as soon as the tin of milk ran out i just changed it straight over. No problems. She didnt even seem to notice the difference xx

hi hun

think i would introduce it slowly, try the morning feed first for a few days, then a dinner time feed, really so you can be sure he isnt allergic to it

the other girls have given good advise mixing 1/2 formula and 1/2 milk, think i will probably try that when the time comes

I know that the majority don't mind the change in taste, but you just do not know if yours is going to be one of them or not! Since it's simple to mix just for three or four days, I figure it's worth it! The long-term consequence of them not liking it and refusing to drink it is to buy Aptamil for a lot lot longer...
