What milk do you give a 1 year-old?

My baby will soon be 1, and she is eating fine. She is even drinking less formula (Similac pro advance) . But I'm not sure which milk or formula to give her once she is 1.

    Your pediatrician will guide you through the process at your one year well checkup, but what I did was I slowly converted her to whole cows milk (organic/antibiotic free/grass fed cows) after her one year checkup (which for us happened the same week she turned 1). By slowly I do mean slow...my daughter is particular about how her milk tastes, so I actually started by estimating how much formula she drank in one day and substituted one ounce of cows milk for 4 days, then 2oz, and so on. Once she was about 2/3 cows milk I transitioned more rapidly. Overall it took me about 2 months to get her on only cows milk (and regular food of course).

    Switched straight to cow's milk at 1 (finished all the formula we had already bought first). Doc said toddler formula is a scam.
