  • I buy only organic milk and meat products. I have read a great deal about the effects of hormone, antibiotics, fertilizers, insecticides on children
    I think that if you can afford to go organic, you should

  • I use regular whole milk. I think it just depends on your lifestyle..what do you want to do? Do you prefer things to be organic?

  • With organic, you are exposing him to less pesticide residue. Whether or not it matters is up in the air.

  • We drink regular milk. In my eyes, all that matters is that he is getting the nutrition he needs to grow up to be a healthy, active little boy.

  • Organic milk lasts longer than reg milk. We do not drink very much milk so it is nice that it has a longer expiration date.

  • We do Organic milk. I think that the calcium in milk is important, but the hormones and antibiotics added to the cows really scares me. I'd rather play it safe. We do organic meats as well for the same reason.

  • I give my son regular whole milk and he loves it. I figure as long as he is getting milk it doesn't matter whether it is organic or not.
