My son just turned a year old a few weeks ago and I am still breastfeeding him. The doctor said to go ahead and give him whole milk when he turned 1. He's been drinking it everyday for a couple of weeks, but just yesterday he has been throwing up. It really seems more like spit up since there is no retching and it just comes up real fast all at once.
He doesn't have a fever or any since of a bug. the doctor said it could be the milk but give it a few more days. I thought if it was the milk this would of happened immediately. Anybody have any clue??

Cow milk is for baby cows, and humans don't need it. Like many other nutrients, and despite the claims of the dairy industry, plant based calcium is superior to animal based. While cow mild is rich in protein, the kind of protein that is contains is casein, while human milk protein is lactalbumin, with is easily digestible; more the 50% of casein isn't digested and can cause health problems later in life, like food allergies. Here is some of what the doctors at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine say: http://www.pcrm.org/health/prevmed/building_bones.html
