I was just wondering why so many people seem to be so against cow's milk and dairy? (Besides those with allergies and intolerances of course!)
Is it bad for babies? So many of my friends are giving almond or soy milk to their kids and I'm wondering if I should too?
I compared the calcium content of different milks and was happy with cows milk, but is there something else I should be considering?

My DS has a milk allergy but if he didn't I would have no problems giving him cows milk. It can be difficult trying to find ways to make sure I'm getting the right nutrients into him if I could give him yoghurt, cheese and milk it would make things simpler.

I have heard people say that most people are intolerant of lactose but we just don't realise because it is such a big part of our diet.
I give my DD dairy. I will avoid giving her soy.

From what I have been told from farmers and one Dr it's that the human body is not actually designed to break down cows milk. We shouldn't actually be drinking it ... Hence so many allergies and intolerances to dairy.
Some people don't realize they actually have an allergy or intolerance because it comes in different forms ie; my son has milk protein intolerance which comes in the form of eczema and as a baby it was constipation.
I guess maybe some people have heard this too!?
I personally still give my kids milk
My son refuses soy I have to find something else, we only just discovered his intolerance after almost 5 years of having it!

Oat milk? I wouldn't mind trying that, I haven't heard of it but I can't handle dairy myself as it makes me sick.

A lot of children find it hard to digest cows milk, I know when DS1 started drinking it after being weaned at 15 months he would get diarrhoea. I gave him goats milk instead which is better suited to our digestive systems.
At around 2 he was able to handle cows milk.
