Right! Down to wake & bed ff - how to get to cows milk?

So 12m old DS is quite happy with cows milk in cereal etc but won't drink it as a drink.

We're down to morning & bedtime bottles of formula (about 12oz total) & he's showing no signs of dropping these anytime soon (which is fine for now) so we want to switch them for cows milk but I don't think going cold turkey will go down well & I don't want to be dealing with a red-faced crying child first thing/before bed (he LOVES his bottle & has no patience for feeding delays!)

How do I make this transition?

Could you do 50:50 formula and cows milk and gradually shift over. DD would drink warm cows milk in her bottle at night but never from a cup / as a regular drink.

I shifted slowly. Started with 75% / 25% and worked my way up!

Ok fab, I'll try that. Kind of stupidly didn't think I could mix formula and cows milk!!! confused
