Re: Milk before 12 months

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.
Yeah, that is reason I understood it be recommended after a year too. In fact, someone on another board who has a lot of experience with allergies/feeding problems, etc said that a pediatric GI or something had told her that anytime someone begins drinking milk for the first time, the gut actually bleeds some. So I guess after a year, the bleeding is somewhat insignificant, but that it would be significant bleeding in a very young infant.

But I would think 11 to 11 1/2 months is close enough. Did you ask the pedi??
