Question: Hi ! Is cow milk good for 9 month old baby.Can i give cow milk ?
Answer: It is fine to use small amounts of cow's milk in cooking from six months onwards. But you should wait until your baby has reached her first birthday, before giving it as a drink. Cow's milk doesn't contain enough iron for young babies. Using it as a substitute for breastmilk before your baby turns one will leave your baby short of important nutrients and may lead to anaemia (too little iron in blood). Infant formula milk contains more iron and vitamins than cow's milk, and is the better alternative to breastfeeding for the first year if needed. Cow milk is also harder on your baby’s kidneys than breastmilk or formula milk and can lead to milk allergy. If you suspect your baby may have an allergy or intolerance to cow’s milk, speak to your doctor. After the first six months, breast milk is not a good enough source of iron, so breastfeeding mums should make sure weaning foods contain plenty of iron. This means using foods such as lean red meats, vegetables and puréesof fresh or dried fruit in your baby's diet.
Question: My baby is 6 months old now,can i give cow milk to baby .it is hoof for my baby helth or not,please give me advice
Answer: Hi.. Dear breast feed or formula milk for complete six months, nothing else.. Normal milk (cow milk) can be given after an year. However, after completion of six months you can give boiled cereal water first (dal ka pani), then semi liquid porridges (vegetable khichdi, lentil and rice porridges), boiled and mashed potatoes, bananas (mashed or in the form of smoothie). Avoid bananas during winters. If the baby is able to digest these food sources, then introduce ragi, oats, dalia.
