I've just run out of formula and DS is a year old on Saturday. Would you just switch to cow's milk now, or buy another carton of formula?

If somebody else asked this question I'd say "stop fussing and just wsitch to cow's milk now - what difference will a few days make?!" but I'm nothing if not a worrier about my own He's not even a pfb

Go for it,I would use cow milk, dd was 11 months when I switched her. She is now 6.10 and never stops drinking it.
He will love it and easier for you, no more bottles to make up.grin

I was such a fraidy cat with ds1 that I gradually introduced cows milk into his regular formula feed bottles until he was used to the difference in taste.

With ds2 I tried him on cows milk when he was 1 or when the last carton of milk ran out at about that time. He drank it no problem so I didn't bother with introducing it gradually.

Thanks everyone, moo milk it is!

He drinks it fine, FioFio, not a problem at all. He's had the odd drink of it at times and he doesn't seem to notice the difference. DD was the same, was never fussed about switching at all. I know a lot of babies refuse it though. So I hope your hat is especially tasty

Windyweather, the bottles is another thing I'm not sure about - he will drink from a cup, but he doesn't drink much that way, and he's not that great at it, spits it out a lot and is a bit spluttery with it. So it may be bottles for a bit longer. Also <sssshhh, don't tell anyone> we/he uses a bottle milk of milk to fall asleep so am curious about what will happen if that is taken away, though of course we have to sort that out.

Forever, am intrigued about the pyjamas comment

Fio, he is very awkward in virtually every single other respect, if that makes you feel better Still wakes up 3 or 4 times a night, too... [zzzzz]

Our DD is 12 months old and switched to cows milk without a hitch too!
I found a cup that looks similar to a bottle made by Tommee Tippee, it even has a silicone teat type thing. We're using that to wean DD off her bottles.

elenor, what's the name of the cup, do you know? I've been through them all, I think, but am always interested in new recommendations! It's not the non-spill one, is it? He can't do that one, if so.
