  • Because it doesn't have the proper nutrition that your baby needs... too much milk too early can cause anemia

  • I gave my son whole milk by the time he was 9 months old. He loved it. I started giving it to him because he wanted a drink out of my cup. Now we drink 2%. He never had any problems. My daughter couldn't have milk until she was 3 because she had trouble digesting it. Different kids, different results.

  • i switched my daughter from formula to whole milk when she was 5 months old. Because she wasnt holding down formula i started her on genteles the dr said she developed a milk allergy so switched her to a soy based formula she still wasnt keeping it down the dr. then said she developed a soy allergy so they put her on nutramigen a hypoallerginic formula and once again didnt keep it down so i finally just put her on whole milk. She has been on it for 7 months and does just fine the only bad thing is i have to give her stinky nasty vitamins everyday bc whole milk lacks the vitamins formula has
