  • From what I've read about it I would think 12 months would be a good age to start. I'm going to give it a try because of the reviews and I want to get our boys away from hormone/antibiotic filled cows milk...

  • I have no clue what hemp milk is. I would say ask your pediatrician.

  • I would ask my pedi but imo, she's worthless. She still can't get past the fact that my DS is ebf at 8 months and isn't circumsized. Any problems he may have are because of those two things. She's a nit wit, BUT the area that I live in..she's the only one he can see.

    I really want to try hemp milk with my son because it has more calcium and vitamin D than cow milk, doesn't block the absorption of iron like cow milk, and has omega 3 and 6.

  • Interesting... How much more expensive is it than cow's milk?

  • I would check the fat content, one of the reasons cows milk is recomended is because it's so high it fat, which their brains need

  • Aqua Jen-Where I live it's about 4 dollars/ half gallon.

    Gypsymama-I am EBFing right now and will still be bfing at 1 year so he won't be getting primarily hemp milk.

  • You can, it is kind of a budgetbuster. We also went from breastmilk to water.
