  • Absolutely not. A six month old can not digest cow's milk properly. Did you change formula? Maybe he is not feeling well.

  • NO! Babies need either formula or breastmilk until 12 months. Please call your doctor.

  • Cow's milk isn't suitable for babies under a year old. Why is your son not taking his formula? Is this a new development? Have you introduced solid foods recently? Is he ill?
