DP and I are going away next weekend (no DC!! ) i'm still BFing DD2 but she only has a morning and night feed, occasionally some BM as drink the day, so i haven't really got the chance to express any before we go
she does happily take a bottle of BM or FM if neccessary but i was thinking of trying her on cow's milk now as she is only a few weeks short of being 12 months, and she has in meals aleady
all my other DC have only been BF until 8 or 9 months and i then went to formula so haven't really gone down this route before - is there any reason she won't be ok on it?
I changed my DD over semi-gradually (she was FF) at the same age.....just a week of one cows milk bottle and then the next one FF. She'd had it in weetabix and cooking since 6 months anyway and she coped fine. I shall be doing the same with my 7 month old when the time comes as well.
DS has been having cow's milk at nursery for about a month now (from when he was 10 months), three days a week. He's taken to it really well, drinks it from a doidy cup, and the HV said that was fine. He's breastfed the rest of the time.
