    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?

    I hope you mean 13 months not weeks????? Cows milk ( if at all) should be given after 12 months and full fat never skim until at least age 2 as babies/toddlers need the fat for the massive growth they have at that age , cows milk protein is hard to tolerate for normal people and before 12 months is definitely not recommended ( plus it hinders iron absorption and has no where near the nutrients of bm or formula which is designed for humans not baby cows!)

    Cows milk should only be given as a replacement for feeds after 12 months and even then they need full fat for it's nutrients. Before 12 months they should have formula and breastmilk. 😊

    13 weeks is way too young for any type of straight cows milk. If you are unable to express breast milk for when you are working, bub should be having formula for those feeds.

    Low fat/skim milk is not recommended for babies under the age of 2.
