Thanks everyone, glad to see what I am doing is normal. I felt odd that I wasn't doing anything when I was constantly being asked when I am weaning/switching to milk etc. I think I will stick with what I am doing and maybe try a small smoothie with morning tea to see how he likes it.

they only require 500mg of calcium per day which is approximately 2 cups of full fat cow's milk. the main nutritional difference between cow's milk and formula is the iron, so as long as they are having an iron fortified cereal or other good source of iron it is fine.
and that includes all dairy - cheese, yoghurt, milk.
too much milk can interfere with nutrient absorption and developing regular eating habits. let baby guide you but be careful not to let bf or formula be the main food source
