Do older babies *need* milk? And by "milk," I mean any kind of milk - breastmilk, formula, goat's milk, cow's milk, almond milk, etc. Should I be giving her some type of milk to drink with her meals instead of water?
My almost-one-year-old still breastfeeds several times throughout the day and night, and that'll continue for a while. But do I need to be encouraging more milk/cheese/yogurt? Do they need the calcium from dairy? And if we want to minimize cow's milk, what's the most nutritious alternative?
