BabyBoy and BabyGirl graduated from breastmilk / formula to cow’s milk a couple of months ago. For me, this was an unmitigated relief when compared to making up formula – no more measuring out powder, using sterile water etc etc.
However, I (like, I suppose, many other parents) went through the debate – should I switch to cow’s milk or one of the many many toddler / growing up milks that are out there and marketed to us?
At first, influenced by that marketing no doubt, I was leaning toward toddler milks. It was familiar – sticking to the same powder-and-water routine, no need to refrigerate etc etc. But then I began to question, why?
