    Default Full cream

    Hi Woodsa,
    For years the consense was that you place your little one on full cream milk after they are 12 months and keep them on it until they have past 5 years. But the lastest research is showing to put them on low fat milk after 2 years. But still start them on full cream when 12 months. This lastest research has only come out in the last month or so. Hope that helps.

    Default moo milk

    Hi,

    start introducing baby yogurt and custards at six mths, your aim is to have bub on cow's milk (full fat for thier development) after 12 mths. Start making cereal based on cow's milk at 10mths, use cow's milk in all your cooking that bub will be eating. Then at 12 mths slowly wean off breast/formula by introducing cow's milk for one feed, if tolerated keep going until all feeds are cow's.

    However, if there is a dairy intolerance in the family history you muxt consult a Dr. first for strict guidelines.

    Hope that helps.

    Question starting on full cream milk

    My daughter is 9 months old and has just started on full cream milk. She seems to be taking it ok. But is throwing it about a 1/4 to 1/2 of it back up. I'm not sure if she is lactose-intolerant or not. She prefers to drink juice.
