My first thread Big Grin

You all seem to be experienced in the world of dragging up rugrats, so I thought I could ask a question...

My little one is coming up to a year old, we're told that he should be drinking at least a pint of milk a day until he's two years old. The problem is that the recommendation is cows milk, the full fat variety. Whilst he's going to be very active, the full fat part doesn't worry me, I wondered are there any alternatives? I really have a problem with cows milk, mostly unfounded but I don't think for a second it's good for us, we weren't designed to drink it and I think it probably does more harm than good.

Is there a problem just sticking with formula? Or what about goat's milk - which I think is closer to human milk? I dunno, very confused and thought I'd ask here first before trawling through google.

I'm sure there are very good reasons why they say you shouldn't continue with formula, whimpy. However, I know there is a soya substitute, which friends of mine use as their son is allergic to dairy. He has had it for years and is doing fine with it.

As for the amount they are supposed to have, there are no "shoulds" and "musts" when it comes to kids. My two had different things at different stages for different lengths of time because it's what they wanted/needed. My eldest had semi-skimmed from before he was a year old because I made the decision as he was a little fatso. He gave up drinking milk at all not long after that, but we compensated with dairy foods. As long as they are getting the nutrients they need, you can adapt to suit everyone.

wtf :w00t:


It's difficult to know what to do for the best, I got out of the habit of listening to what the midwives said, as each day they had a 'new school of thought'. But it's a new stage now, he's toddling!! It's all fresh and new and scary again. :kid:

So what did the youngest have?
