How to transition to cows milk

After the one year mark, pediatricians ok you to start transitioning from breast milk or formula to cows milk. I can only hope that my son will make this transition easy. Thinking back to when I started to integrate this into my daughters schedule, she drank whole milk like a champ. But then again she never fussed about taking a bottle either. I'm a little worried that my son will be different. He refused the bottle for 8 weeks straight a very stressful time because I was returning to work. So with this upcoming transition I'm anxious about this whole thing! Here's how I slowly transitioned my daughter.
I would start with only adding a 1/4 - 1/2 of an ounce at first and slowly increase it after a couple of days. Then go to 1 - 1 1/2 ounces so on a so forth. I'd much rather do it slowly than cold turkey for the babies. Also you have to think of what temperature you've been giving the milk at. Because if your child is like mine, he likes his milk very warm.... so the coldness of the cow milk might shock the system!
I'm interested to learn if any other mothers have tips or ideas for the transition?
