Can i just switch to cows milk for my dd or should it be gradual? half formula half cows milk for a few days?

I started by making my ds cereal with cows milk, and then Used up the last tin of formula by mixing it half and half, then just made the switch. I didn't have any problems and enjoyed the savings!

I tried just switching and it didn't work. Ended up swapping an ounce a day into the milk mix until fully converted. Then slowly made the milk less warm until DS was happy with it straight from the fridge. Wonderful moment!!

I gave it in cereal first then gave it in ds's bottles during the day then at night too. DS never bothered at all even a few weeks ago he was ill and not eating i gave him follow on milk just to get some goodness into him he drank it then switched back to cows milk without an issue.

We switched and it gave dd horrid nappy rash so had to do it more gradually.
