    Two things.
    As PPs have stated breastmilk grows and changes with your baby. So at the year point, when it's normal and natural for your child to begin to get nutrition fro other sources AND for your child to begin to be around other toddlers the immunity level go up dramatically.

    Also please bear in mind that formula companies job is to MAKE MONEY. Not keep your baby healthy. All they are trying to do by talking about how great their completely unneeded products are is to increase their market share. If they can convince you that toddle formula is better for your child cow milk and worth more money they have succeeded. Mission accomplished.
    Please remember that all of it is Artificial food. A huge piece of what you are giving cow's milk and all dairy products for is for the fat content. But your toddler can live a perfectly healthy existence- Cow milk free! Several toddlers here wouldn't or don't drink cow's milk and it's really OK.
    Also I don't know if you are exclusively pumping or not....but a lot people "pump wean" at the year point with no ill effects and just continue to nurse while together! HTH!

    Way too lazy for formula

    Actually, in older times Breastmilk was coveted and used by the rich and the elderly. It helps old people with immunities much like it helps babies.

    Because of the flavor or because society makes you think it's weird? Of course we've tried it! You want to to make sure it's OK for the LO if you Pump. Fresh, mine's very sweet, in the fridge after a day...it tasted Gamey. I didn't like it. But the baby always liked it fine and my Local leader, said that babies can be trusted not to drink spoiled milk. They will reject it if it's no good!
