I started with aptamil but as the price was quite high i switched to cow and gate. The price for that is £7.49. Co-op sometimes sell it for £6.49. Asda sometimes sell for £5 during baby event. I stock up when its that price.

Are you using stage 1 or the 6 months plus. On stage one you will never find a offer on the milk. Normally you can find offers on the 6 months plus milks. Boots do offer sometimes. Mostly on cow and gate. Aptamil I never saw on offer when my kids used it.

you can check here healthystart.nhs.uk/hea…fy/

you could also try more food than milk…i put my daughter on cows milk by 1yr old and shes not keen on milk by 18month but loves all foods! i believe they don't 'rely' on milk as much once weaning.

As previous poster said-you could try more food, less milk-personally I used less formula than stated and topped up with bottled water or rice milk-this should also encourage your little one to eat more (however, I didn't start doing this until after 12months). If you are on Income Support or Child Tax Credits, you should qualify for Healthy Start vouchers, which give £3.10 a week towards milk and fresh fruit/ vegetables. This amount is doubled in the first year I believe. Costco do cheap baby milk-if you can find a friend who has membership.

milk is same price everywhere. they are not allowed to promote formula

Tesco brand and KoKo brand coconut milk can be used from 6 months. it is dairy free and doesn't taste too coconutty. My son will drink this instead of formula along side breast feeding.

This ^^^ . It's only the follow on milks that get put on offers and they are a waste of money as they can have cows milk by then How many bottles a day are they getting ? seems like a lot of milk to go through once they are on a full solid routine , where they get calcium from other foods also.
