    Default Changing 1 year old to cows milk?

    So my DD turned 1 a couple of weeks ago, and for the past week I have been adding cows milk to her bottles of formular ( she has been on formular since she was a couple of weeks old) she seems fine with cows milk and has it with her weetbix as well but i have a couple of questions;
    How much cows milk can she have per day? As she usually has 4 bottles per day at the moment when she wakes up when she goes down for naps and when she goes to bed at night ( she does eat properly as well )
    And should I just give her straight cows milk now instead of with the formular?

    Thanks in advance and sorry for my long post lol!

    I started giving ds cows milk just before he turned 1 and he is fine. I do still give him a bottle of formula at bedtime though.

    As soon as dd was 1 I changed her straight from formula to cows milk with no issues at all. She just asked for her "bob-bob" (what she called a bottle) and I'd give it to her. She probably had 3 or so bottles and one at night but that always varied with how much she chose to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner and how many snacks she had during the day.

    I think the recommendation is no more than 500mls per day after the age of 1 of any milk, mainly as their nutrients should now mainly come from solids and too much milk can fill them up!
