The official guideline/recommendation says that 1yo and above can take cow’s milk, with the child eating solids well (carbo/meat/fibre) to meet all the nutrition needs. A lot of parents do continue to give formula at this age, but it’s not a must. My toddler happens to drink Marigold milk, but I think you can choose whatever brand you like. Do note that if you choose fresh milk, it has to be refrigerated, so baby needs to be okay with drinking cold milk. The alternative is getting UHT packet milk, which doesn’t need to be refrigerated, such that milk is at room temperature when served. Also if you’re considering cow’s milk, I strongly suggest avoiding flavoured milk (eg. Chocolate/strawberry) for as long as possible, otherwise the child may reject plain milk in the future, and always want sweet drinks. Anyway, the decision is ultimately yours. Hope our input helps:)
