Ds2 is 1 in 2 weeks time. He has been ff since he was 2 months old. We have run out of formula and thought we would try him with cows milk in his sippycup - he has drunk water from a sippy cup quite happily since he was 5 months old.
He will not drink it.
Do I persevere? Do I give ff in his bottle til he is 1 and then stop? Do I just accept he wont drink any milk? (my ds1 is 6 and still has warm milk morning and evening)
I really do not want to buy "follow on" or "toddler milks" as I think they are just yet another way for the formula companies to make money and I want him off his bottle by the time he is 1.
I didn't bother trying to get mine off bottles quite that early (although they were probably down to just bottle at bedtime by then, which persisted until they were 2) but neither of them has really drunk cows milk other than from a bottle (cold, not warm). DD apparently does at nursery, but DS refuses point blank.
As long as he gets calcium from other sources, and is drinking plenty of water, then my attitude would be why worry?
