  • I wouldn't. U know they do sell ice cream made out of soy, coconut, and rice. Is she lactose intolerant?? If she is the only cows milk ice cream that would be okay is McDonalds soft serve or frozen yogert.

  • usually they don't like to give milk to babies until they're a year old, but she's really close. I wouldn't imagine it would hurt her. My father in law gives all the babies ice cream and mountain dw after 6 months... we all hate it, but it doesn't change anything except you get a couple interesting diapers.

  • SOY IS HORRIBLE. google it. It's very bad and high in estrogen. babies on soy formula get about as much estrogen in one day as 5 birth control pills.

  • my first daughter had ice cream at 6 months lol just watch her if she has never had milk products before to see if she reacts badly to it.

  • Dairy is an allergy trigger food and should not be introduced before age 1
