Re: Question on replacing nursing sessions with cow's milk/f
I never gave my daughter cow's milk. They tried to give it to her at day care and she never would drink it, which I wasn't concerned about. As long as you are nursing 3-4 times a day still, you don't need to replace breast milk with an alternative milk during the day while she is at school. Depending on how attached to the bottle your daughter is you might just be able to stop sending bottles altogether.
My daughter started refusing bottles right around 13-14 mos so I stopped pumping and sending them and it was never a problem. They gave her water and solids at school. Though she was still very attached to the breast so I was confident she was nursing plenty to cover it. We nursed on demand at night and on weekends.
Now if you're talking about weaning and replacing nursing sessions I'd consider providing some kind of alternative, but that really depends on how much/how varied her solids diet is. Some kids at that age don't eat many solids at all, others can snarf down a 12 course meal.
