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.

It may even cause iron deficiency in some babies, since cow's milk protein can irritate the lining of the stomach and intestine, leading to loss of blood into the stools.
