Answer: Hi. No dear cow milk should be given only after baby is one year old. 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: Can i give cows milk to 11 month plus baby
Answer: Hi! Wait for few more days let the baby complete 12 months and then offer. If you are breastfeeding, the pressure to start cows milk is less. Start with about 30 ml in a glass or sipper/ straw bottle. Don't worry about the quantity. It takes time for baby to like the taste of cows milk. If at all. You can instead give things like curds and paneer that most babies like. Cows milk is basically like a good snack. My daughter at 2+ is finally having about 100 ml a day. And many days she's not interested in it either. Don't mix anything in the milk. Let baby get used to taste on its own. Don't mask it with sugar or any complan etc. Hope you find it helpful :)

Question: Can i give cows milk to 11 month old baby?
Answer: Hello dear. Babies can't digest cow's milk as completely or easily as breast milk or formula. Cow's milk contains high concentrations of protein and minerals, which can tax your baby's immature kidneys. Cow's milk doesn't have the right amounts of iron, vitamin C, and other nutrients for infants. Cows milk has to be given only after 1 year, and only after diluting. Take care.
