Please avoid animal milk until ur baby turns 1 year. Cow’s milk does not have the complete nutrition that babies need. Its is too low in iron and vitamin C and too high in protein and minerals compared to breast milk. As a result, babies under 1 year who drink cow’s milk instead of breast milk or formula are more likely to develop anemia and other health problems.  If the baby is above 6 months of age, it’s fine to give her the small amount of cow’s milk in yogurt and cheese.

Hi plz. consult your pediatrician as most of the pediatrician don't recommend it... my baby's pediatrician recommended it only if baby digest it properly .... though it's depend on your baby's digestive system I am giving cow milk to my baby since 4th month and she is absolutely fine... but I used to mix water to make it light..

hi Madhumita Kumar !please Avoid giving cow's milk before yr baby is one year of age. his digestive system is not yet ready to digest animal milk.
