Both of your children should certainly stop drinking from bottles now espcially your son who has had tooth decay as a result of bottle feeding.He is old enough to have full cream milk now. He only needs two cups of milk a day. Your daughter is on Isomil. Is she allergic to cow's milk or does she have lactose intolerance? if she is not allergic to milk and does not have lactose intolerance then she can also change over to regular full cream cow's milk 2 cups a day.
