Switching to cow''s milk

Dear Prof, my 11 month old baby girl is on Novalac (2) during the day and Novalac SD for night bottle. She weighs 11,2kg and eats, sleeps very well. Can I now put her on full cream cow''s milk during the day? There is still some night formula left, can I give her cow''s milk during the day and use the SD until it is finished for night bottle (should be finished within 3 days) or do I change over completely to cow''s milk and not mix?? She is on 1ml creche guard during the day, starting creche on Monday, could I increase the dosage to 2,5ml per day?
Kind regards

Your baby daughter has done very well on her Novalac formulas.You can change her to full cream cow's milk now and you can use up the remainder of the Novalac SD for the next few nights.After that she will be on the cow's milk only.
