Is milk okay for 8 month old?

I still give ds formula and he eats really well. I want to make sure I say that right off. Anyhow, is a few oz a day okay? He is fine with dairy btw.

  • they say not to introduce real cows milk until the baby is a year old. there are a couple factors, especially that there is actually alot of sugar in milk and can damage their teeth, also allergies to milk can come up at such an early age plus there are other reasons. best to stick to breastmilk or formula till atleast 1 year old. good luck!

  • When mine were babies I was told by the doctor no milk until after their 1st birthday. I would suggest you hold off on milk and give formula until you get the "Ok" from your child's doctor, then switch to milk.

  • try goat's milk if you really want to serve milk. That is what I supplemented with (instead of formula) and it went great!!
