I've done when dds were 13 months, 18 months and used cows milk in a cup at 2 years etc. Have a fantastic time, I love going on holiday with mine, just back from holiday with 6 and 3 year old and 4 month old, its great fun, enjoy yourselves.

we have been been emailing someone from trip advisor that went to the same place. they said they never saw fresh milk in the supermarkets there.hmm

I personally would check that the local cows milk is pasturised before offering it.

Lots of milk drank in France for example, is unpasturised. So long as you can easily buy pasturised it will be fine.

I also personally think your idea of taking some ready made formula cartons is a great idea. You know it's safe, you can take it out and about with you in the cartons. Much more portable in the heat. I would definately take a few in your position.

i just dont want to risk going over there and either not getting any or its not the right milk. maybe taking some ready made stuff would be best...
