We will be swapping DS when he reaches 12 months (in a couple weeks time), I've got enough formula to start mixing the 2 to transition it over to completely cows milk.

Anyway my main question is how much does he need during the course of the day? This is a typical day for us currently

7-8-am 8oz formula in sippy cup

9-10am ready brek (probably using at least 3-4 oz of whole milk in it)

12-1.30pm lunch and fruit

4-5.30pm dinner and yoghurt (decent sized Rachel's organic yoghurt not a tiny baby pot)

7pm 8oz formula in sippy cup

Throughout the day he will drink 7-12oz of water with meals and in between and will occasionally have snacks

I will add milk to food such as mash etc and he has cheese also.

Is it usual to carry on with morning and night milk past 12 months and roughly when did your little ones only have milk at night?

Thanks for reading this far!

I just give the same amount of cows milk as I did formula. So 6 oz in the morning and 7-8oz before bed. I think the recommendation for 12months plus is 300ml including other sources of dairy (cheese yoghurt ect) I also started a multivitamin when we made the switch. HTH

At 12 months ours had 9oz cows milk in a bottle at 7:30pm and 6oz at bedtime.

Now at 18 months they are 6oz in a bottle at 7:30am and 5oz at bedtime.

300ml or 10oz is what they should have but that include dairy throughout the day too.

Thanks for the replies! I thought it went down from 500ml but couldn't remember what!
