Cows milk at 11months

My little boy is 11months and has 3 milk feeds a day. I've ebf until last month where I introduced a beaker of formula for his afternoon feed in preparation for me returning to work. I'm getting to the end of my formula and wondering if to change it to cows milk.

He doesn't seem that interested in formula (he only drinks about 1/2 of the beaker) and has been having cows milk in his food from 6 months. He also has his daily multi vitamins. I'm probably going to look at slowly dropping his other feeds once I start back at work (by which time he will be a year) and think it will be more disruption for him to stop breast feeding and change to cows milk then.

i know the advice is to not give cows milk until 1 but given he's only a few weeks away and it's only one feed do you think it will be ok or should I just buy another tub of formula for one more month?

For the sake of a couple of weeks, I really wouldn't bother with more formula once you run out..

Mine were both on cows for their afternoon feed by 11months
