firstly formula or cows milk she is to young to drink cows milk..

and no milo is not ok, you will find she will end up with a sore tummy and hard to poo

milo is an energy drink no child needs that sort if thing try food colouring, small amount like a drop, the mind is a wonderful thing

at 8 mos. she may not be ready for milk, it can upset a baby's stomach. My dr. suggested we start switching at around 11 mos. and my kids both loved it. formula is really the best option right now.

The way I have my baby get the taste of cows milk is mixin it with her baby porridge but not all the time, just now n then n she likes it, n the only chocolate I give my daughter is baby biscotti biscuits , babies don't need chocolate just give their teeth a chance of growin right without rotting lol :)

I would say no. If you are trying to wean your daughter onto cows milk and she doesn't like it, trying diluting it with water, or try mixing it with formula.

I started my son on cows milk when he turned one, and at first I put about 40 mls milk with 50 water, then one scoop of formula. Gradually I cut the formula out until he was just drinking the milk with water.

I do give him a cup of toddler's formula before bed though, just to give him the extra nutrients they add to it.

Hope that helps.
