They can eat dairy, it's just not enough to sustain their life.

yes it's cooked in many things she eats already I'm sure, breads, cookies, crackers, etc.  Dairy is fine, drinking milk instead of formula/breastmilk is not.

Yogurt is fine, cheese is fine, sour cream is fine and cooking with milk/dairy products is fine.

Cooked dairy is easier to digest than straight cow milk. It should be fine. (said by the mom who doesn't give her kids cow milk!)

I know most ppl listen to their Pediatrician and don't give babies cows milk until they are a year old or older, but your post reminded me of DH's aunt and her kids. She bf'd them for 3 months. THEN--she went straight to cow's milk!! YEP!! NO formula!! Just went to cow's milk!! I am NOT recommending this for anyone's child, your post just reminded me of her and her weird way of doing things. Her kids are all grown up now, and perfectly fine.

Milk before one is fine...it just shouldn't be a replacement for breastmilk or formula (no matter how many kids turned out "fine."). My son loves pancakes :P Like PP above, it's probably found in a lot of foods you already have served your little.
