DS is 6 months. Do I put him on follow on milk straight away, or can I carry on with the stage 1 formula? Do I have to pout him on it at all?

No , unless you think you will save money. Follow on has little nutritional benefit compared to stage 1.

Same calorific content in follow on milk, there's very little difference.

Some have added iron I think.

You don't need to switch if you dont want to. Follow on milks only exist so the formula companies have a product they can advertise

You can carry on with the stage 1 until he's ready for cow's milk or whatever milk you prefer to use.

My understanding is that follow on milk only exists so formula companies can advertise something as they're not allowed to advertise stage 1 milk.

You might get points or offers, but apart from that there's no difference.

That makes sense, although DH has just bought a box, too late to tell him not to bother now! I'll just carry on as we are then. Thanks all.
