Babies shouldn't have milk before 12 mo. They never need cow's milk, cow's milk is for baby cows. Formula is made from cow's milk to help infants that aren't human milk fed survive until they can survive on food alone. At that point they need no mammal milk (cow, goat, whatever). Most people in the world by the time they are 3 are lactose intollerant and can drink little milk without digestive problems.
Rejecting milk isn't a bad thing. Most kids have too much milk. Only 2 servings is recommended. Kefir is a good choice. It is a yogurt like drink with lots of probiotic that even people with lactose intollerance can usually drink. He may be able to eat cheese. My 3 kids have never had a glass of milk and they are adults.
