    In regards to hydration, DS1 drank a lot of water and still does.

    I am reluctant to give 11.5mo DS cows milk, I might try an alternative like goat's milk or rice milk.

    Our CHN told us just this week that toddler milk is a load of tosh. She said that up until 3-4 years ago it wasn't available. If your 12+mo has an adequate diet, then a milk supplement is redundant. It's just another product that you don't need for them to sell. (I say most people don't need)

    Toddlers formula is only advertised as the companies aren't allowed to advertise baby formula. So they changed the labeling to toddler an they can advertise

    I too was told formula for over 12 months was not necessary. That if you wanted to continue with formula stay on the one you were on as the toddler ones are ridiculously high in sugar.

    I have a theory that toddler formula only exists so that the formula companies have something they can legally advertise. I think it's completely unnecessary.

    I tend to agree with this theory.

    The toddler one my SIL uses has the same amount of sugar as cows milk , I looked into this when she was trying to find one as many people tell me they are high in sugar but we found most are not

    I'm no expert on sugars, but I'm pretty sure those found in milk (lactose) are markedly different to the kind used as sweeteners.
