Any advice. My LO is 13 mo and he has 9 oz formula before bed and 7 oz in the morning. None in the day. He won't drink cows milk, at all. Any advice? Should I stop giving milk, altogether? Or is it ok to still have a bit??
Thanks in advance.

Have you tried swapping over an ounce at a time? So if LO has 9 floz make 8floz and add 1 floz of full fat cows milk. Then when he's used to that, swap over another floz.

I'd do it with both bottles though, just for continuity smile

Great idea. I'll give it a go. Thanks.

There is a difference in flavor, so it is normal that your LO doesn't like the sudden change.

I did as JiltedJohnJulie has suggested, I started adding a bit of cow's milk to the formula and I was increasing the amount of cow's milk little by little each day. It was a slow process in our case, my LO had mixed milk for around a couple of weeks and now she loves it.

Try him on oat milk? Just as calorific & fortified but he might prefer the taste
