Is the nurse right? (Breastfeeding question)

She says that after the 1 year and a half mother's milk no longer have the same nutrients and that I should supplement with cows milk or any other milk.

  • i believe it is true that the nutrients change, but it is my understanding that the milk changes to meet your child's changing needs. so there is no need to supplement. i think i might look into this though. did you check kellymom?
    after a year my kids breast fed less often and ate more food. we never gave cows milk or any other milk.

  • No. That doesn't even makes sense. After a yr a woman's body suddenly says I'm going to make cruddy milk now?

  • PP thank you so much.

    Since I don't have the medical knowledge I wanted to check on what other moms might think of this. A friend of my MIL was with me and she seems to agree with the nurse.

  • Hahahahaha...absolutely false info. As long as you make it and they drink it, it will still be nutritious for them. Cow's milk is for cows. They can still have it until they are 5 and it is still exactly the same nutrition wise for them.
