    Default Skim milk?

    My bub is 13 weeks. He still on bf milk when im home. I work 4 days week. I have started to introduce him to cows milk. However as we mainly take skim milk, that's what i give him. Is this wrong. Should he be on full cream milk only? What are the pros and cons?

    13 weeks? Or 13 months?

    And toddlers should drink full cream milk.

    I was told by our child health nurse to introduce cows milk after 12 months and then full cream until at least 2 years old. Before that formula if need to.

    Whoa... Must be a typo, can't be giving cows milk at 13 weeks..?

    Babies should have breastmilk or formula as their main nutrition until 6 months. Then as their main drink until 13 months. Babies can have a small amount of cows milk in cooking from
    8-9 months, but not as a drink.

    At 12 months bubbas can drink cows milk, but full cream is recommended until bub is 2 years as skin doesn't have all the fat etc needed for bubs brain/growth.
