    cows milk is the highest known allergen for kids under the age of 3, purely as it was not made for our systems ( baby cows grow 10 times as fast as baby humans so the proteins are something like 10 times the amount of breast milk and they have a totally different digestive system to ours ) and obviously it does not have the correct vitamin/mineral/fat/ carb ratio babies need - plus the homogenisation and pasteurisation has taken away most of the good stuff anyway (raw milk would be better ) the dairy corporation has done a brilliant job at marketing their product to allow us to believe kids need milk - we apparently have one of the highest increases of osteoporosis in the world and are also one of the biggest consumers of dairy so clearly it's not working!
    Yeah. I had to have soy as a baby, also had eczema and asthma (still do). I can have dairy now but I didn't eat cereals as a teeneger the milk made me feel sick in the stomach. I drank cows milk during my pregnancy and now dd is allergic to dairy and eggs and cannot tolerate it at all (swelling, hives, vomiting- even red itchy irritated skin if it contacts her skin). So yes, I do think there are ramifications for certain people.

    I was bf for a few months, I know that. Not sure what I was fed after (mum has passed away). I spent a few years on reflux meds and have had digestive issues.

    Slightly OT but I bought unhomogenised milk recently- delicious! I wouldn't drink un pasteurised though.

    That sounds like coeliac, intolerances aren't meant to be that severe.

    I have food intolerances that come and go, I developed dairy intolerance in my teens that caused me to lose a lot of weight, that lasted til my twenties. Not long after that I developed an intolerance to gluten, again lost a lot of weight, (I was so sick from this, I weighed 43 kgs, didn't menstruate for about 18 months, and people thought I was anorexic or had cancer), there's been others over the years.

    I have a very sensitive gut. I think it's all related to how I was fed as a baby.

    I love the Unhomogenised milk! We have a fantastic local dairy near is that makes the most amazing milk. The only unpasturised I've had us straight from the udder and I prefer to be bottle fed. ;-)

    I was BF until 9 months when mum went back to work. I don't know if I had formula or milk but I know it was from a cup because I refused a bottle. I have no allergies or intolerances.

    Unpasteurised milk scares me. I know we have eradicated things like tuberculosis but they can always come back into the country. Raw milk would be the biggest transmission route for it.

    Yep, that's why I won't ever go raw. Just not worth it IMO.

    Yes fat lazy fingers did write this =)
    I had this debate with myself too with recipes for DS2. I thought a little cows milk in food was ok after 6 months.

    I was give watered down cows milk with sugar added as per doctors instruction. Lol.

    I have some digestive issues now, but this is a result of removing my gallbladder. I had a cast iron stomach before that point!
