Normal milk is totally fine - the others are a marketing ploy

Sorry - vitamins - you could get some but if they are having their normal meals abd in good health you wont need to. I actually put both of mine onto semi skimmed but they have quite a lot of milk

Normal full fat cows is great, assuming no allergies
He'll get everything else he needs from food, doesn't need formula

The official advice is full fat cows milk plus vitamin D supplement.

Official advice is to switch from human breastmilk (or human breastmilk substitute) to cow breastmilk. Because that obviously makes sense hmm

Sorry op, being facetious there. Other posters are right about the official advice.

Full fat normal cow or goat milk

My ds was 1 last month and he will not take to cows milk at all as a drink, he takes it in cereal but thats it. I got advised to put him on the 1-2 formula as he wasnt taking cows milk. I dont know if its the taste of it he doesnt like

My HV said full fat cows' milk and a vit d supplement. I still give my ds follow on formula though because he prefers it.

Normal full fat cows milk in a cup not a bottle if possible because of the concentration of sugars on new teeth
