Changing from Formula to Fresh Milk

Hi,
What is the soonest I can change my child from Formula to Fresh Milk. He is now 8,5months old and weighs in at 12kg's. He is very healthy. Should there be any reasons why I cant change him over now?

You should not change him over before the age of one year. This is due to the added nutrients and iron that is provided in the formula feed and the absorption of these nutrients at his age.
