question-circle Switching to cow's milk

Hi mommies

My baby boy is turning 1 on Sunday, and that means he's ready to switch to cow's milk (he has had a bit already when I was out of formula and had no funny reactions and willingly drank it.)

Any pointers as to how I can do the switch? Some people mix the cow's milk into the formula, and some alternate between formula and milk for a while. What do you think is best, or do you have an alternative?

Thanks xx

Hi Betti,

My pead advised me to only start cows milk at about 18 months

So I basically changed to nido at 12 months and then started phasing in the cows milk with the nido from 18 months

In the beginning i would replace 1/4 of the water that mixed with nido with milk, then a few days later 1/2 etc till i was down to just the cows milk.

Their stomach does get a bit squishy in the beginning, but dont worry, just follow through and it will normalise after a few days

TanyaS, what is the difference between Nido and formula? Is it cheaper, or what made you change? Ive been considering it, but it seems like formula to me so I havent been sure what the difference would be....

I think its just a form of powdered milk? I think lol. It did work out a bit cheaper as the big tin thats about double the large formula tin was about 250, but ive been on normal cows milk for the last 8 months.
