  • We started 2 weeks before he turned 1, just a couple bottles of milk a day to see if he would be alright and make the transition easier. Then after he turned 1 we switched, mostly milk and a couple bottles of formula for 2 weeks.

  • Cow milk is for baby cows, and humans don't need it. Like many other nutrients, and despite the claims of the dairy industry, plant based calcium is superior to animal based. While cow mild is rich in protein, the kind of protein that is contains is casein, while human milk protein is lactalbumin, with is easily digestible; more the 50% of casein isn’t digested and can cause health problems later in life, like food allergies. Here is some of what the doctors at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine say:  http://www.pcrm.org/health/prevmed/building_bones.html
