I had the same problem so I took a 1/4 of milk and added it to the formula and made sure it wasn't cold. I did this for bout a week then when to half and half, still making sure the cup wasn't too cold. Then the following week was 3/4 to 1/4 and so on. Once we were full time milk in the cup, I made sure to gradually introduce it cold with each time making the temp a little cooler. It took time, but really worked with both of my children.

HELLO!!!!
I decided to use the Grow and Go instead of regular milk. Try half and half i used the same method when I switch fron breastmilk to formula...

It could be because of the taste!!! I mean she's been used to one particular taste for most of her life. When I took my son of breast milk, he did not want formula nor regular milk so I had to substitute to other Vitamin A and D food to make up for it. But later his babysitter gave him Horchata, which is rice milk. It's sweeter so the taste is more bearable and my son loved it and has been drinking it for almost a year now. There's Horchata rice flour that you mix with regular milk and that's what I use now. It's a great way to get him to drink milk with a little taste. After a while he was used to the taste and has no problem drinking milk.

My fifteen month old loves milk...I stopped giving her formula in a bottle when she turned twelve months and only offered her milk in a cup to drink...no juice or water. When she was thirsty, she drank it and got used to the taste.

my, now 7-year-old, was exactly the same... she just refused to drink cows milk when i stopped baby milk at 12 months. however cow & gate do some growing up milk now which might be an option it's for toddlers from 1 year http://www.cowandgate.co.uk/our_products... might be an option to make sure she get the vitmins/calcium she needs x

The taste was a big difference for both of my girls and it took some time, I mixed the regular milk with the formula slowly and eventually phased it out, it helped and I only did it for about a week.

try mixing half milk and half formula to help her get used to the different taste and texture.
