You could try soy milk. My son doesn't do well with cow's milk. But, he'll drink soy milk just fine.

Are you giving the new milk in a bottle or sippy cup? Many kids will only take formula from a bottle and any other liquid from another option, like a sippy cup. We made a big deal about him drinking from a "big boy" cup. Pretty soon he was refusing the bottle entirely.

I also highly recommend reading the book "The China Study" - it explores the role of milk in the human body. We chose to not include dairy in our diet as a result. We meet all our nutritional needs with other foods. The concern is that casein, the primary protein in cow's milk, is a contributor to cancer.
