Hi lovely mumsnetters

I’m looking for some advice, I’m currently exclusively expressing breastmilk and looking to transition my little one onto cows milk when he turns 1.

Any guidance or advice on how to do this?

Please - no guilt-tripping about this decision

Thanks

Hi. I didn't express (BF then formula) but some of my friends managed a straight switch, others including us mixed formula and cows milk gradually increasing the amount of cows milk. I did a similar thing with BF to formula too. You've done absolutely amazing expressing for that long, huge congratulations!

Thanks for replying!
It’s been very difficult to be honest but I really wanted to reach a year, I’m now being told to try for two years but I just don’t think I can do it.

Mixing the milk is a good idea as it’s a wee test and also lets me reduce my expressing slowly too, thank you 😊
