Not only what Sarah said, but also regular milk can actually deplete their iron levels, causing possible anaemia. You should wait until the child is 12 months old. That is also what is recommended by doctors. You should continue with the formula.

Until they are 12 months old they should be drinking only formula or breastmilk. Regular milk does not have the proper nutrients in it for proper brain and development growth. It can also affect babies digestive system.
