Should I give cow's milk?

I am currently almost 18 weeks pregnant and DS has reduced his feeds dramatically, feeding only once during the day and then perhaps twice at night. He is 15 months.
I am not sure if my supply has dried up or not as I can't tell.
Just wondering if I should start introducing cow's milk into DS's diet seeing as I may not have any breast milk at the moment?

Sure, if you like .... but it's not essential! Does your DS eat any other sources of calcium? Cheese/Yoghurt/green leafy veg etc? Some kids love milk and others don't, I found my daughter much preferred rice or soy milk when I weaned her at two years.

My daughter never took to cow's milk unless it was a babycino lol.
She does eat real cheese(not plastic crap) and yoghurt, so i really wouldn't stress too much if he doesn't drink much.
Green leafy vegies have calcium as well, and almonds too I think.
