When did your LO come off formula all together mine mainly has one at night to get her asleep and if she wakes up one then.

Cows milk she will have ads drink in her cereal.

I'm thinking off putting cows milk in her bottle for her bedtime milk. Is this okay?? Xx

Depends how old she is?

How old?

We stopped formula a day or so before dcs 1st birthday as the box of formula finished. So we're on proper milk for milk feeds.

At 1 year old DS was having all cows milk other than a night time formula bottle.

Advice is at 1 year switch to cows milk. I think we then over the period of 3/4 days moved his night time bottle to a sippy cup at about 13 months.

Sippy cup of cows milk at 13 months that should say!

I used cows milk in food from about 6 months and then as night time drink from 12 months

She is one and the only time she has a teat bottle is for night feeds think the milk and the teat soothe her. She has silly cups throughout the day x

Just one or nearly two?

Personally I think it's ok to keep having a teat bottle at night for a while after one, and transition to sippy cup when they're ready. My son was bf before bed until 19 months but I think by 12/13 months we were giving him cows milk in sippy cups during the day.

I threw out bottles just before 1st birthday and transferred to this which is similar but not a bottle and will then move to proper cups in the next few weeks. However I am a nursery nurse who has run a 1-2 room so I am used to/know 1 year olds can drino properly from Tom mee tippe cups from 11 months and open cups from 16/18 months so I tend to keep to this when moving dc forward.

DS is 13 months. He has sippy cups with cows milk in with meals and one bottle of cows milk before bed. Changed over from formula at around 12.5 months when the box ran out. Plan to wean him off that bottle in the next month or so.
