Hi.. my little love turned 1 year. Now I am thinking of Cow's milk. So far she is on Formula (Nanpro) from Day one. Now my biggest question is what must be the ratio of water I shall mix in Cow's Milk. My in-laws say 1 cup of milk must be mixed with 3 cups of water. I doubt it bcoz of diluting nutrients. Can somebody please help me out with this. Also how much quantity is recommended.

Thank you Very much for all your suggestion. Based on your Suggestions Now I can conclude, if the Cow's Milk is of very thin in consistency there won't be any need of mixing water in it. However, for the first few days it is advisable to add little amount if water to see how the kid is taking it and observing the digestion and bowl as well for any abnormalities. Am I correct.

you can give without adding water but for 1st few days u can add water in 1:1 ratio. then slowly u can reduce the amount of water n give.

Milk3:2 water or 2:2 it depends on how many ounz your baby drinks.. first try once in a day so she can get use too of cows milk after one week you can give twice or thrice.. hope it helps:)
