    its the next stage on of milk, to go along side weaning, some use it, some don't, my hv said its not worth it, but imo, i disagree, as it provides the extra iron and vitamins needed during the weaning process, but like everything, its parental choice :)
    i'm just going to be using the aptamil follow on milk as maddi has always had aptamil and has got on really well with it :)

    ah. gotcha. I never weaned my son. maybe that's why I hadn't heard of it. He weaned himself at just over 16months and was already on soy milk - as he can't have cows milk.

    I've just bought a tin of C&G stage 3 for Jack once he finishes this tin of stage 2 milk - he drank a ready made carton of it today & liked it:happydance:
    He has been on 3 meals for a while now & was starting to refuse his milk, so I was getting worried he wasn't getting enough goodness from his milk, but I have started to stagger his milk & solids further apart so he can now finally manage to go 4 hrs between feeds & he is drinking one less bottle, but more milk at each feed, but we will still switch over once this tin is empty.
