12mths onwards, at least that's what we did, although its ok in food from 6 mths, ie mash tatty, so long as no history of allergy.

i started ds on cows milk bit by bit from around 10.5mths as hv said as long as it wasnt his main drink he would be ok then at 12mths i withdraw formula bit by bit until he went wholly onto cows milk.

Did you go for a straight swap from follow on to cows milk at 12 months or should I do it gradually?

12 months here, and I just switched straight over because she didn't seem to mind. I know people sometimes gradually switch.

DS1 didn't drink cows milk until he was almost 3 just wouldn't take it (stuffed him with every other dairy product though LOL).

DS2 went straight onto cows milk at 11 months - we just gave him one bottle of cows milk to see how he got on, didn't bat an eyelid and actually drinks more cows than he did formula!

we did a gradual mix over a week or two, as tried the straight swap and dd went YUK!
