Alternative to cows milk

My son is just about 15 months (12 adjusted) and we are about to fully switch him off of fomula and onto milk.  He's already had a little cows milk before but I'm not big on the idea of cows milk, so I'm thinking of just doing almond milk.


Are there any mommies that give their little ones anything other than cows milk?

Coconut milk, almond milk, goats milk...
My 14 month old is picky..she won't drink coconut milk and cows milk and goats milk makes her constipated. :/

We do soy milk, but there are tons of alternatives! Maybe try a couple and see which he likes best? Almond milk is super cheap and easy to make, if that's what you decide on.

The problem with alternatives to cow's milk is that there isn't enough healthy fats in it. Have you spoken with your doctor about this yet?

We've let him have a cup or two of cows milk and almond milk... he LOVES the almond milk.  I wouldn't be making it though, I would probably just buy it from the store.  It's still way cheaper than the cows milk we get!
