    We just went straight to cows milk. I personally wouldn't use toddler milk as I feel it's unnecessary. The fact that they make a big point of it being better for babies because of the added iron in it makes me laugh as milk actually inhibits the absorption of iron no matter how much they add! a balanced diet would be better IMHO.

    If he'll have cows milk go for that. Oscar wouldn't even entertain it, one sip then never again! He's on c&g toddler milk and is like an addict for the stuff lol I don't blame him as I love hot milk, but without sugar it's horrible, and obvs he can't have sugar added, but the toddler milk is sweetened with vanilla. It's really lush!

    AJ is a fussy eater too. We kept him on toddler milk for the same reason.
    Managed to switch him over to cows just over 2yrs old, took a while though and a good few weeks of refusing cows milk in am (gave him toddler pm until he accepted it.)

    H doesn't like full fat cows milk so refuses it. He has semi skimmed milk on breakfast and toddler milk at bedtime as I like the idea of him havin something warm in his belly at night throughout winter. I will prob stop with it when it gets warmer.
