Cow's milk should not be introduced to babies below 1 year. It is very difficult for them to digest because of its high level of potassium, chloride and sodium and Cow's milk doesn't contain all the vitamins and minerals that is needed for proper growth and development of baby below 1 year. So please wait until your baby is 1 year.

Hi vandana, coz milk with sugar is not advisable at this age. (I assumed that you are doing breastfeed to your baby) . Many baby don't take formula milk, my son out of his 7m took formula milk only twice, and always I have to throw the packets or milk made. So don't worry. I will suggest you rather starting something on our own better consult your pedc first. Hope this helps. Happy Parenting!!!!

Please talk to your paediatrician if your baby is refusing or has missed 3 to 4 consecutive feeds!
