My lo has just turned 6 months old - do most people switch to follow-on milk then? He is FF and we've been giving him Hipp Organic. He never really took to the powdered milk (made him super gassy) so we've been giving him the cartons.

I'm not sure if most people do, but the NHS recommends sticking to first milk until the baby is 1 and then going to cow's milk.

Follow on and toddler milks have been created to allow the formula companies to advertise their brand, as they are not permitted to promote newborn formula. (Mostly because they've been pretty unscrupulous in the past) It doesn't even exist as a product in countries where they are allowed to advertise freely! smile

We never used follow on milk although I can see why people did- offers and boots points etc. I don't see why you can't however I never saw a need to change from what worked well!
