And what is there to 'forgive' Pregnor for? She said absolutely nothing wrong.
Oh & there are plenty of guidelines out there recommending cows milk from 12 months. All the brochures I've got from the health nurse about milk say you can wean onto cows milk from 12 months. Same as some kids health websites I've looked up after seeing them in doctors offices/pamphlets/etc. Google brings up plenty of sources.

I agree with pregnor completely and think there a few valid points there and the need to get defensive is totally uncessary... We're all adults here just sharing our opinions and hopefully factual evidence to back them up if necessary.
All the handouts I have received have also stated cows milk is usually fine from 12 months (be sure to keep an eye out for allergic reactions though for the first few introductions).
Also, a few of friends and also two separate mchn's have told me 2-3 bottles are more than enough for a child of that age who should be eating three solid meals and healthy snacks throughout the day. Given each child is different and some cannot bear to part with their milk, this is only recommended. I find with my 9 month old, if I give him any more than three bottles a day he has a sore tummy.
7.00 wake up/bf
11.00 - 12.30 sleep
3.00 - 4.30 sleep

I am the same as the other pp, I don't think cows milk is a good substitute for bm/formula either , my naturopath did not recommend it mainly as the protein is too hard to digest plus the pasteurization kills a lot of the nutrients , it does not have the nutrients bm/formula have,Iron is still very important and cows milk does not contain any ( unless fortified) my 16 month DS still has 1 bottle of formula a day, and will probably stop soon as he is now getting all his nutrients from his food , he drinks only water but does have goats/rice/oat milk in smoothies or porridge ( a2 milk is meant to be the best cows milk to give if you do give it )

Thanks OP for this thread. I'm so sick of conflicting advice! I'm just doing what works best for us. DD1 had weaned by 1 year and so I used to mix some toddler formula into her milk to make sure she got enough iron - this was 9-10 years ago. DD2 is still BF 4 times a day (which, thanks to PP, I now see is quite normal) but I have to go back to work (far from care) so I have been trying to work out how/what to wean her... After all the mish mash of information, I decided to do the same as DD1, change her day feed to milk with a bit of formula for extra nutrients - it didn't hurt her one bit!! I think the best thing at this age is that no matter what you do, just making sure they are getting a balanced diet and it's all good

Speaking of overreacting.....
Some people have too much time on their hands and yet strangely no time to actually read what has been written and what is obviously between two posters and NOTHING to do with them.
Before you attack, ask yourselves: did I read this incorrectly? Could I be reading this the wrong way?
Chances are, you're right.
Wont bother asking myself for a source for your info
For the benefit of those who obviously skipped what was actually written, I was responding to the OP, not proferring advice to all and sundry as was indicated by other poster. I wasn't being rude or defensive, just answering a question. Wonder if I would have received the same flack if I had just ignored the question? I guess being polite has its drawbacks in here.

At 12 months DD switched to cows milk. Prior to this she was having 2 bottles a day of formula (or maybe 3...that was only 2 months ago and I've forgotten!). At 14 mths out routine is:
7am - cup of (cow's) milk
8am - breakfast (usually weetbix/fruit)
10am - snack
11:30am - lunch
12pm - sleep (1.5-2 hours)
3ish - snack
5pm - dinner
6pm - bath
6:30pm - cup of milk
7pm - bed (and wine for mum!)

My DS is 1 on Sunday. His day looks a bit like this:
7am - wake and bf
7.30/45 - breakfast (weetbix/porridge)
10am - morning tea - fruit, cheese
11- nap (2.5-3hrs)
1.30/2 - lunch
3/3.30 - sippy cup with cows milk and something small to eat
5.30 - dinner, bath
6.30 - bf
7.00 - bed
I make sure he has lots of dairy in his meals and snacks.
I switched to cows milk last week for his afternoon drink. I switched to cows milk for my DD around the same age and I will wean DS onto cows milk when we're both ready.
