DS is 13 months and I've been trying to get him to accept cows milk but he's not having a bar of it. I've tried cold, room temp and warm but no go. How did you do it and how long was the process?

Weaning from formula to cows milk
19-05-2015 09:41 #2
I changed by bub over a couple of months ago when he was about 15 months old. At first I mixed the cows milk with formula, for example about 1/4 cows milk in the formula. I then just reduced the formula and upped cows milk over next few days and about a week later he was on cows milk completely. I thought it would be harder as he's very fussy with food but he seemed to take to the cows milk very well.

With my son I did it straight away and he was fine, with my daughter I'll be doing the same and hopefully she accepts it easy.

I started doing 3/4 formula - 1/4 cows milk for a week or two then down to 50/50 etc etc until it was cows milk only.

So basically you all started with it in their bottle. Maybe I'm going wrong with using a cup.

Yes we still give it in a bottle. I know I should move onto a cup but it's only twice daily so I've just carried on for the sake of keeping routine and for comfort.

Think I'm going to have to cave and try it in a bottle.
