12 month DD has now given up all milk feeds - is this ok?

My DD took to weaning brilliantly and by 7 months was on 3 good meals a day - as a result milk feeds dropped quickly (bf until 9 months). From 10 months she had just one bottle at bedtime, however for the last fortnight has refused it every night (now 1yo). I know they will stop ultimately, but this seems a bit early?

She does eat loads and gets plenty of dairy in diet, so I guess she's just full up and ready to stop??

She needs at least 500ml formula a day until 12 months - if she gets less than this you need to supplement with a multivitamin.

From 12-24 months she needs about 350ml of full fat cow's milk - you can count milk in cereal, full fat yoghurt and cheese in this total.

Thanks - she easily meets 350ml, so I guess I can relax.
