    Default Formula for meals - never had formula

    I have a 7 month old DB. Never had formula but with solids there are lots of recipes that talk about having milk. I don't have the amount of milk to express that is required & he is too young to have normal milk so can I start introducing formula to meals like that? Which formula is a good one for his age?
    He has had solids since 4 months old and loves it. So want to be able to have variety for him.
    Thank you

    Formulas are trial and error with babies.

    If you dont want to use formula you can use milk but small amounts. If you dont want to use normal milk use one of the alternatives on the market. I think there is a milk designed for kids thays gentler on tummies. Cant remember what its called but i usually used small amounts of plain milk for my boy.

    You can add normal milk to food for babies under 12mths but it is not recommended that you make cows milk their full source of milk till after 1y. I think A2 milk or goats milk are gentler on tummies if you are worried.

    I just used normal milk ie if I was baking DD some biscuits and the recipe asked for milk I just used our usual Dairy farmers. If she had some of my oats (with milk) it didnt really matter either. They dont eat that much!

    Hi

    My DS is 10 months old and BF. I actually use real milk (organic unhomogenised) in cooking. MCHN said it's fine in Cooking. Also heard that not delaying the introduction of such foods can make the development of allergies less likely.

    Its a common misconception that babies under 1 can't have normal milk in their diet. They can have milk in food, yoghurts, etc they just can't have normal milk as a drink or replacement for formula or breastmilk.

    I use an organic jersey cow milk to mix into the recipes that require it for my 7month old DD and she has whole milk natural pot set yoghurt too which she loves

    I also agree with the pp that said goats or A2 milk, the protein is a lot easier to digest

    You could always use rice milk or oat milk in cooking (so long as LO has eaten rice/oats before) if you're not comfortable using cow's milk
