Afternoon everyone. I am after some advice on how to transition our DD (turning 1 on Friday) over to cows milk in her bottles. She is already having milk in small amounts with her cereal & also in the yoghurt and cheese she has. She is currently on Nan HA Gold 2 which is made up with 210ml of water & 7 scoops of powder. I want to make sure I do it properly so I dont make her sick. Thank you in advance :-)

what i did was gradually add the milk into the bottle with the formula..
she has 210 mls of formula which is 7 scoops. so take make up the formula using say 5 scoops which will give you x amount of formula and then top up with milk to make 210mls gradually do this and decrease the formula scoops until she is having just milk..
this is what i did for my 2 , 18 and 16 yrs ago..

I switched my DS at 17 months without transitioning. If he was younger I would have gradually transitioned.
i think the rule of thumb is:
1/4 cows milk 3/4 formula for a few days or a week then
1/2 cows milk 1/2 formula " " then
3/4 cows milk 1/4 formula then obviously 100% cows milk.

I started switching DS over to cows about 14mths with doing similar to above pp.
I then did half for a few weeks especially when he got sick.
Then I did day sleep bottle as full cows milk and his night time half and half. If he woke through the night it would be full cows milk.
Then once he was about 18mths I put him full cows milk for all bottles (2 most days)

I did 1/2 and 1/2 for a week then 3/4 to 1/4 for a few days and then straight cows milk.
No issues at all - prob could have done straight cows milk sooner.

Thank you for your responses. I guess I just have to figure out which approach I will take :-)
