I am desperate to start my 9 month old on regular milk, weather it be goat or cow.
My milk never came in, so she has been on formula her whole life. DR. said NO whole milk until 1 year, but when I asked why, she couldn't really give me a fair reason. She said because of iron, but I make my daughters food and she daily has pureed spinach in her diet. I asked if we could check her iron count and we did, her iron levels are above average and Dr. was pleased. Still the Dr. said, no whole milk.
I've been doing some research as I am not a fan of formula and want to know if any Moms out there have started their babies on goat or cow whole milk at 9 months. If not, what are the risks, if so how did it go ?
Thank you so much for any help!
