ds2 is nearly 10 months old and I am preparing to return to work. He will not drink formula and I can not express a full feed for him. So would it be ok for him to have a few ounces of cows milk?
He has cows milk with cereal so I know he is not allergic to it.

I would say it was ok as long as the rest of his feeds were breastmilk. He only has a couple of months until he can have it as a main drink so having a small amount each day shouldnt be a problem. My ds went down to 2 milk feeds at about 10 1/2 months so he didnt have any daytime milk - maybe your lo could cope without milk while you are at work and make up for it when you get home.
