    Default Changes to make leading up to weaning at 12 months.

    Also I've bought rice milk too but Id really like to find out what is the most nutritional cows milk substitute for toddlers, soy/rice/almond/oat?

    OP keep her on her bottles until at least 12 months, all types of milk don't have the nutrients needed for the massive growth spurt she needs between 6-12 months ( food before 1 is fun!)

    I've got A2 cows milk, almond milk and rice milk so can give you that comparison - hopefully someone with soy and oat can check theirs! 100ml-

    Almond. Rice Cow

    Calories. 16. 65. 65
    Protein. 0.5. 0.6. 3.1
    Calcium. 120. 120. 117
    Sugar. 0.1. 4.2. 5
    Fat. 1.0. 1.0. 3.6
    Sodium. 51. 60. 48

    Cows milk has the lowest calcium and more sugar!

    Thanks for doing this! I've got oat and soy so I'll add that:

    Almond. Rice. Cow. Oat. Soy.

    Calories. 16. 65. 65. 61. 64.
    Protein. 0.5. 0.6. 3.1 1.0. 3.3.
    Calcium. 120. 120. 117. 120. 120.
    Sugar. 0.1. 4.2. 5.0. 1.5. 3.5.
    Fat. 1.0. 1.0. 3.6. 1.0. 3.0.
    Sodium. 51. 60. 48. 45. 60.

    Cows milk still has the most sugar. It also has the most fat and 2nd least sodium. Soy is probably the closest...? Oat is looking like a pretty good substitute for me coupled with high protein and healthy fats, eg: avocado, foods...

    I upped his solids and for tea he ate 3 bowls of veggies, a fish pattie, half a home made muffin!!! The strangest thing though, he normally goes to bed at 7 - he did not want a bar of it so DH got him up and he has played flat chat for 2.5 hours!!! We finally put him down with a bottle and fingers crossed he is asleep.

    Im going ahead with 0 day bottles tomorrow and then a bottle for bed, I'll deal with weaning him from that bed bottle in a few weeks I think.

    Has anyone else experienced evening hyperactivity with bottle weaning???
    Just thought I'd update on last night after DS hyperactivity. He went to sleep with a 200ml bottle (I only put in half the formula) at 9pm. He woke at 11pm and I gave him a small bottle of water. He slept through from 11pm - 7am. I think I will still give him his evening bottle - cold turkey is too full on

    Yeh soy on paper looks the best - I still think cows is the worst! My DS does not really drink milk but I do make smoothies and like to use a variety of milks - one I will buy and check later is Goat - from memory that is better than all of them! I'll go get some today and report back!!!

    That would be great thanks! I like the rotating idea, I gave DS rice milk on his cereal this morning and he liked it, not sure how much he ate, lots seemed to be everywhere!

    Ok - Paul's Goat milk per 100ml
    Protein - 3.2
    Fat -3.8
    Sugar- 3.7
    Calcium- 117
    Salt -68

    So similar to cows but goats protein is easier to digest !

    Thanks Elijahs Mum! I think I'm going to rotate DS milks and see how he goes. How often and how much milk does your DS have daily? Do you remember how much he was having at 12 months?

    He has no milk regularly now (26 months) but I do usually make an afternoon smoothie (he drinks about 100ml) with whatever milk is open (A2,goat,almond etc) otherwise its water, mineral water when we are at restaurants ( the poor thing thinks its lemonaide!!) and some mornings he now has a espresso sized cup of roobios tea ( caffeine and tannin free , full of antioxidants!)

    I just looked up my baby connect app and at 12 months he was having 150ml in morning, 100 mil afternoon and 100ml at night - then by 16 months only 100ml at night ( but that was more habit!)

    It's very easy to get calcium into toddlers (if that's what you are worried about with milk) it's only 1- 1and half serves per day of calcium rich foods, easy with a tub of yogurt, veggies, nut butters, seeds, cheese, fish and fruit during the day

    Wow, thanks girls for all of that research! I think I'll try soy and goat once DD is 12 months. Then if she cracks it at the taste of those, I'll try rice and almond milk.

    I'm still very nervous about cows milk anyway as when I tried yoghurt, it really upset her stomach and made her very unsettled.

    Babyla, how old is your bub? Good work with the night bottle. I'd imagine cold turkey would be pretty darn difficult, but you have done well so far!
