Re: Milk before 12 months

At nearly 12 months cow milk can be introduced. Cow milk can be hard on little ones because it is made for growing cows, not human babies...so the mineral etc content can be hard on the kidneys and digestion. Formula is adjusted to be more like breastmilk. However, at her age she should be fine, just be aware of new constipation etc once you start. Babies with an allergy to cow milk will often have symptoms when they are BF if the mother uses dairy products.
