Help! I need information regarding delaying starting cows milk!!

I am still nursing my 1 year old DD. She nurses about 6-8 times a day still, so I really don't think she needs cows milk. My husband and I had it out last night because he gave her a cup of milk and i was like "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?" and he was like, "I'm giving her milk..she's one now, she can have it!"

To make a long story short, he said he'd give it to her when I wasn't looking, I cried, and he finally said that he wouldn't give her any. But he needs a GOOD reason why she doesn't need it.. because me NOT wanting her to have it isn't a good enough reason..

So if anyone has any links to anything about this.. I would be so very grateful if you'd send them my way!!

I cannot attest to the credibility of the website, but it does have a lot of info on it that I do know to be true (being lactose intolerant myself).

Some people can drink milk and be just fine. I am not against dairy products in general (I loves me some cheese ), but dairy can cause diarrhea , cramping, respiratory and heart issues. The big thing is that dairy products produce mucus. This coats the entire esophagus, stomach, intestines, etc. One big issue that this causes in the intestines is that if you are not getting enough fiber in your diet and high levels of mucusy foods is that it will start to putrefy and rot and you cannot get it off easily. It is like tarter on your teeth. You can brush it off when it is just plaque, but once it becomes tarter you need a dentist to get it off. This putrefied coating releases toxins into your body and can cause you to get ill.
I don’t know how extreme you want to take it but you can also do research on how bad the dairy industry is and point to the high levels of feces and puss and growth hormones there are in milk.

Re: Help! I need information regarding delaying starting cows milk!!

seems to me that the milk is supposed to replace forumula, or breastmilk, the big deal with milk is the calcium which she is getting in the milk already right?? the protien and calcium is the big push on milk. seems to me she gets enough of that in the breastmilk. so she really doesnt need it be he is right she can have it.

well...it's not scientific of anything, but I'd reckon she doens't need cow milk because she isn't a cow

Check out http://www.milksucks.com/index2.asp under the for your helath section. Although in my mind, any of the other reasons are pertinant, too.

No human ever needs cows milk. My son is lactose intolerant anyways, so he doesn't get any. But yeah... there's no reason for milk. She needs the fats and calcium found in milk, both of which can be found plenty of other places as well.

My dd is 2 and hasn't had cow milk (she is still nursing also)~ she gets plenty of dairy from cheese, yogurt, etc. My ped is in no way concerned with her getting cow milk, as long as she gets protein in her diet also, which she does.
