dd turns 1 in a couple months and im curious about toddler formula. I know how cows milk can irritate their tummies but i'v heard from other moms that toddler formula is just a ploy to get the consumer to buy that instead of milk. What did you use? Also... how did you ween from formula to cows milk or baby formula to toddler formula? Id love to hear different opinions :D

With my first we just went formula to cows milk no issues at all. She went to bed with formula woke up to milk. My youngest had issues so we just did almond milk instead. Again one day formula the next milk.

I don't see the point in toddler formula. As soon as my son hit one year old i switched straight to cows milk. Never tried to wean him and he had no issues with it that i can remember

I started introducing cows milk at 9 months. By 11 months my dd was just on cows milk, she has never had any problems at all. She actually started to gain a little more weight more often since I started cows milk.

At 12 months I started doing half formula half cows milk for a week then just switched over to cows milk.

I tried to toddler formula but my son hated it. He loves his cows milk!!

My daughter had to drink the soy milk, so I was a bit worried about the cows milk. But I slowly introduced her to it at about a year and she has no problems at all
