at what age did you introduce cow's milk?

my LO has a milk protein allergy, so i've been avoiding milk products (i exclusively pump). i am wondering at what age you mamas introduced cow's milk, especially if there is anyone out there that has a LO with a milk allergy. and what process did you use to introduce it? i would love to hear your stories. thanks mamas!

We won't be. at least for a good long while. If we do it will be in the allergists office (per his request and my comfort) but that will only be if/when he is contact reaction free for well over 1 year.

Just too risky to do - and frankly, IMO, not worth it since they don't need milk/dairy.

(just relized I replied to your other thread asking this )

My son has a reaction (hives, reddness, you name it) if anything dairy even touches his skin.
It's how we knew there was a real problem. He doesn't have to ingest it for there to be a problem, hence the epipen I carry everplace I go - JIC.
