I don't know if I am being a bit dim - but can't seem to find the answer in weaning info - I know cows milk as a drink is not recommended until a year as it doesn't have enough iron, but what age do you start using it with breakfast cereal? At the moment I am expressing milk for my 7 month olds cereal, but it is a faff. What does everyone else do?

I've also read that you can give cow's milk in cereal from around 6mths, but I use formula for my ds, who is just gone one yr.

Started at 6 and a half months when DD first had cereal.

6 months, like others. Cow's milk is said to be ok mixed with other foods, it's using it instead of formula/breastmilk that is a no-no. EBM too precious/difficult to extract to risk wasting it on rejected cereal.

Janx my ds is 7mths, I'm b/f and I use follow on milk for cereals and cooking.

do you make up the formula for cooking and store it in the fridge for a few days? I'm going to have to think about this soon as DS is allowed dairy from 9 months and I'll be making batches of suaces etc etc

Thanks for advice - I tried formula on cereal, but it seemed really thick and hard to mix into the porridge - have used cows milk now - heated up for porridge and dd loved it
