DD is one one Thursday and as off with her now for 9 days, I work part time, we have decided to change her to cows milk now.

This morning i gave her 8 oz straight from the fridge and she was not impressed warmed it a little and she guzzled 7.5.

I was going to omit her usual afternoon bottle where she took 6oz of formula and then give her another 8oz bottle of cows milk pre bed. Am I mad to do it in one day all posts i see here people do it over two weeks etc.

She's not a great eater breakfast fine, lunch ok and dinner not much. Advice gratefully recieved.

( ye may have guessed she's our first)

If she's happy drinking it, what's the problem? Sounds like you're doing fine.

Your DD sounds exactly like my DS at this age and he's still the same food wise eats at the start of the day and by the end just stops!

I changed my DS from Formula to cows milk when he was a week off his 1st birthday. We did it over a 3 days I think. We swapped one bottle then two then the third so like a gradual cut down. If it suits you and your DD are happy doing it in one day go for it!
