Hmm Maybe you could do half formula and then top it up with cows milk but I'm not sure if that might upset her stomach a bit?


Don't worry too much hun, as long as she's getting her calcium through other means and her fats too, she will be fine. I think munch bunch do a yoghurt that is made from whole milk, rather than the normal fromage frais.

My advice is, don't worry what the hv says! as long as you are happy with her progress. She probably just doesn't like the taste, I don't remember being very struck on milk as a kid unless it was full of sugary milkshake or something! Even now if I have a cup of hot milk I have to add a good spoon of sugar to sweeten it up and I don't have sugar in my usual tea or coffee!!

dont worry.

I bet you she gets loads of milk in a day. 1 little pot of yoghurt has 1/4pint of milk in it and cheese has a lot. bless there is whatever she has on her cereal. Im sure when you add it all up she has more than the recommended daily amount for her age.

Joseph never drunk milk after he was 1 (and I cant blame him it is disgusting stuff)
