I'm hoping this is the right place for this.
My DD has turned one, and I'm wanting to replace the formula with cows milk.
The only issue is, is daycare.
She goes 3 days a week; and they only do water for older kids. They do not offer milk.
How do I go about removing my DD from formula when daycare don't have the option to give her just plain milk instead.
DD still has 4 bottles a day; currently only 1 cows milk. 120 at 8am (this is the cows milk), 120 at 12pm, 120 at 3pm and then a 260 at 7pm.
Does anyone have any advise on how I can go about removing these formula feeds?

I can't believe they wouldn't offer milk for 1 year olds?? When I worked in CC in 2010, we would still give milk to a handful of 3 year olds at nap time who still had a comfort bottle then...

You're in charge of what your child eats- tell them you want to have them offer milk. It's your right. You're paying them, after all, what you say goes as far as things like this go. My 22 month old still takes bottles of cows milk to day care when I haven't expressed enough bm and it's not an issue.

I would be kicking up a stink about it . How dare they not offer her milk !

I am surprised they think a 1 year old should just be having water all day. I would just send along the milk and bottles and write down the rough times you expect them to be offered to your DD.

When I transitioned DS to cows milk, I just did half milk/half formula for a week or so, then just cows milk. He didn't have any dramas adjusting
I agreed about insisting she is offered milk.

Just send your own milk like you would formula? Are they saying they won't give it too her or they just won't supply it? If they won't supply it, just send it with her.
