Milk suggestions for kids 3 years old and up

For parents with toddler-kids, may I know what milk brand you give your kids starting age 3? We looked and asked around but were advised that maximum age of milk brands available in stores is up to 3 years old. My son is mixed-fed and has been drinking Chirumiru by Morinaga since he turned 1. Although he is already eating regular food, he still asks for milk in between meals and before bedtime. He is turning 3 soon and we still don't know what milk to give him. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance for your responses.

    We give regular cow's milk for our kids after they graduated from follow up milk. I buy through Coop, one of their own brands, as they test for radiation and have a Hokkaido milk that isn't mixed with milk from Tohoku like a lot of other cow's milk in mainland Japan.

    I've been giving my 3 year old regular dairy milk (the kind you get in a 1-liter carton for 100-200 yen) for the past year with no real complaints. She was still demanding a bottle for about half of this year, but we stopped her special milk options when she was around 2. Now it's the normal, low-fat milk the rest of the household uses. I'm not sure how many other milk options exist for this age range as I think most people switch over to regular milk around this time.

    Since weaning both my kids off bm a little after 1years old, they have been talking whole milk from supermarkets. Apparently the fat from whole milk helps with brain development. Hope this helps!

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
