Ds is not amused confused he won't take it and without his bedtime bottle he has not been settling well at night sad I've tried putting the cows milk in a bottle and warming it but he tastes it then just throws it away . Hes just turned one .

Can you mix the cows milk and formula until he gets used to the taste,that is slowing reducing the amount of formula and increasing the amount of milk.

My DS refused cows milk at first too, I reverted to formula for a week then replaced formula with cows milk an ounce at a time. So 8ozs formula and 1oz cows milk for 2-3 days then 7 and 2 for a couple of days and so on. This worked a treat and is now taking 9oz bottles of cows milk.
