“I was just wondering if anyone had some ideas on toddler formula. My 1 year old(today) has been formula feed and now looking into whether or not go with a follow on formula or switch to cows milk. I am just worried about which one and what others have done might help. I tried a follow on formula when my first was 1 but she hated it. ” What is better, follow on formula or cow’s milk?

Ask your question
  • if the child eats ‘healthy’ most times i think there is no need for follow on formula..cows milk is fine (3 kids all cows milk from 12 mths) but this is just my point of view no way the best advice for YOUR child :-) follow on formulas are good for fussy eaters who need more vitamins in their diet for growth, i think .


  • When mine were young there were no follow on formulas so they went straight onto cows milk, no allergies with any of them either


  • Following :) I have the same question.


  • we just went straight to cows milk from formula :) and we had no problems


  • Most MCH nurses say if they can tolerate yoghurt and cheese to go to cows milk.
