OK, this is obviously written in British (which is different from American <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">) but I am really having a hard time with this:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Question:<br><br>
The product is made with 75% follow-on milk; if it is a weaning food why isn’t it made with cow’s milk?<br>
Answer:<br><br><b>As cow’s milk is not recommended as the main milk drink for babies under 1 year, and as HiPP Organic Good Night Milk Drink can be given from 6 months onwards the product has been formulated with Follow-on milk</b>. Follow-on milk is particularly suitable as it is designed for this age group and has the desired protein, mineral, vitamin and iron levels.</td>

Isn't "follow-on milk" MADE from cow's milk? Isn't it just what we Americans would call cow's milk based formula? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

What exactly is "follow-on milk"?<br><br>
It's British slang, evidently. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I think the phrase "follow-on milk" is a way to circumvent the WHO marketing code. The UK pays at least token attention to the WHO, unlike the US.<br><br>
It isn't a breast milk replacement, which you cannot (ethically) advertise. It's for AFTER you wean as a "follow-on" (at 6 months, naturally <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">). But, 6 month olds more iron than in unsupplemented, plain cow's milk (due to intestinal microperforations and bleeding). Therefore, you feed iron-supplemented follow-on milk.<br><br>
But it's not a breasmilk substitue (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">)
