  • No milk. A 7 month old should only be getting breastmilk or formula. If you choose to give your child cow's milk it should be after 12 months.

  • Now...if you're referring to formula or breastmilk...these are still the primary foods. So...let him tank up on those, and top off with solids. The real question is how many solids should a seven month old be getting, and the answer is, "Whatever he wants after nursing or his bottle."

    Breastmilk or formula FIRST< solids after...all the way to the first birthday. These are more nutritionally complete than solids and a baby who gets solids first runs the risk of missing out on things he needs.

  • None. Milk isn't recommended until closer to a year of age.

  • No milk...only breast milk or formula....and as much as he wants. My pediatrician had me start mixing in cow's milk around 9 mo...gradually until she was on cow's milk exclusively at 12 mo. Mine was also in the 90% for weight so I don't know if that would be different for other babies.
