Q:

Hi everyone. My baby is 8 month old and I am planning to start cow milk to him. 6th month onwards I had introduced formula milk to him along with supplementary food. please suggest me whether I should go with Tetra packed cow milk or packed cow milk bag or simply unpacked cow milk available in dairy.  So also tell me with which brand I should go with?



Priya

Hi. I went with Amul Taza tetra pack.

Hi Ashvini, I would suggest you start cow milk after one year of age. My doc told me that cow milk contains high amounts of minerals and proteins that an infant's kidney may find it hard to process. You could consider formula feed or better still breast milk till one year of age.    

Sheeba Vijesh

i agree with Gayatri Rao... especially, nowadays cows are genetically modified to produce large amount of milk, and this milk is said to be unsuitable for babies, so olden times cannot be compared to now... go with fm till 1 year...

Ankita Popli

I gave amul tonned milk..

Hi...wait till 1,year....give formula milk...Sheeba Vijesh said it's true..

Harneet (clanpedia)

no animal milk before 1 year pls.

aradhana sharma

baby is still small for cow milk, give formula milk, cow milk should be given after 11 months only

Rakhi Puri (beautyofmommying)

Ashvini Sonar animal milk, honey and nuts should be avoided till one year....still confirm with your pediatric if you want to give... breastfeed is best as long as you can... possible in any situation with help....

Saima Tariq

use Cow milk after completion of 1 yr.
