Hi I have just put my 1 year old on cows milk from formula and she takes it fine except at night. She has always gone to bed like a dream and slept through from being 8 weeks, now she has her bottle and screams for an hour before settling and also wakes up in the night for another bottle. I thought this was because the cows milk wasn't as filling as formula so I have given her some porridge as well as her bottle before bed and I'm really hoping she sleeps through! Has anyone else experianced this? What did you do? I have also contemplated giving her cows milk in the day and a formula bottle at night does anyone know if this would be okay?

That would explain why she is a normal happy baby by day and a handful at night. Thanks x

Giving her formula at night would be just fine. The milk might just be hurting her tummy. Milk is difficult to digest, and if she is not moving around to aid the process, she could be getting a tummy ache.
