Do you have any digestive problems now? Obviously there is strong emphasis on the fact that we shouldn't give our children cows milk before 1 and preferably not until after 2. That wasn't the case in the 80s and many of us were 'formula' fed on boiled cows milk. Just curious to see whether people have noticed a difference in their bodies.

None at all for me

This is an interesting topic. I come from NZ & the milk is a lot better than I have found here. I was also feed pretty much straight from the cow. I had a few slight issues when I came to Aus & found food in general to be tasteless & I even noticed the difference in milk when I shifted states.
My hubby who was born & lived in SA on a farm has found the same. Over the years he has gotten worse with milk & has had to switch to soy due to his issues. I also made the switch as it was easier than buying two sets of milk. Our whole family drinks soy milk as well. I do try organic milk every now & then but found my body didn't like it. I just hate paying up to 90c extra for soy milk when it's nearly as much as the same as cows milk from coffee shops😡.

Forgot to add that I did try my DS on cows milk but his psoriasis, congestive nose & runny watery poos were getting really bad & has pretty much disappeared since the switch.

DP and I were both BF until we were at least 1. We would have both had cow's milk from 6 months in food, etc. DP has a slight intolerance to dairy, I have none whatsoever. I didn't know it was not recommended at all under 1? Do you mean as a drink on its own?

I was breastfed for 18 months but would have had cows milk in food from 6 months.
I haven't consumed cows milk for some years now but when I did I found it upset my stomach somewhat. I'm not sure if that's a result of a mild intolerance?
DS2 seems to have issues with cows milk upsetting his stomach as well. He a has ezcema that flares up as well. He was breastfed for 2 years and had very little in the way of dairy.

I was ff and then was given straight cows milk from 1 and have no intolerances at all

And Dp was breastfed til at least 12 months has mild intolerances to cows milk now. Not in things like cheese or yoghurt but in pure milk. A2 milk seems okay though. Her sister is LI.

I'm thinking bigger problems than intolerances. The reason I'm asking is that my best friend has had major digestive problems for as long as I've known her. Gall bladder, general bloating, divertoculosis. She is always in trouble with her tummy and was given cows milk from birth. Just curious to see if others have similar problems.
