  • 12 months is the recommended age. I honestly wouldnt do it much sooner than that. As for reasons why here's a good website with information on it.

  • One year. Earlier introduction can open baby up to future digestive ills like IBS and Crohns.

  • A year. Introducing around 11 months maybe, but only a couple ounces a day.

  • Not earlier then 12 mos, but I usually waited a bit longer, as my kids still nursed. And my DS has problems with cow's milk, so he drinks rice or almond milk.

  • Dairy should not be introduced before age one; it is an allergy trigger food.

    Cow milk is not necessary, and too much may do more harm (leaching iron, and calcium from the body) than good.

    Get you child in the healthy water habit.
