My 6 month old has been doing really well on formula from the start. Shouldn't she be ready for cow's milk?
No. The Canadian Paediatric Society, Dietitians of Canada and Health Canada recommend that you wait until your baby's is 9-12 months before giving her homogenized (3.25%) cow’s milk. Although milk is fine for older children, it doesn't meet the nutritional needs of your baby. For example, milk doesn't have the iron your baby needs.
