Maralee, generally cows milk should only be introduced gradually, so most people mix formula or breastmilk with cows milk when starting to introduce it so as to not upset the tummy so much. Cows milk digests differently......



Brittany, what you did sounds fine. Just gradually increase the cows milk and watch for any signs of digestion problems, such as changes in bowel movements or tummy cramps. But chances are it will be fine, most babies transition without any problems.
