  • Straight from the AAP website: Whole milk is not recommended until after 12 months of age;although yogurt and cheese with modest amounts of added sweeteners can be introduced after 6 months.

    Here is the site:

  • One year is recommended as a minimum. The main problem with much earlier introduction is that formula or breast milk is a much more complete source of nutrition for a baby human's first year.

  • !2 months at lest. I know formula is expensive and whole milk is A LOT cheaper but not a good idea. Just wait 2 more months to introduce whole milk.

  • well most wouldnt, but my son had already started eating cereal with his grandma at 10 months bc she didnt think it would hurt him, and it didnt. i switched him to regular milk right before 11 months and he was fine, but each baby is different, some are allergic to cows milk so i dont reccommend it, but i did.

  • my little one only gets whole milk with cereal too. He's eleven months. I'm just gonna wait out the next month before I start giving him milk full time.
