are you talking about regular milk or formula milk? ive been giving my ds milk milk starting at 9 months but i do formula still also. i dont think it will hurt her unless she was one that had tummy problems but if she is teething than its probly not going to help her and the tylonal/motren and teething tablets/orajel will sooth her more bc she is restless from pain and disconfort and warm milk can sooth her when she is trying to fall asleep in a normal situation but its not going to help with the pain.

I agree with PP, if your DD has teething pain the warm milk won't really help. I would use Tylenol/Motrin.

I have started giving DD regular milk once a day so her system gets used to it for when we stop formula in 2 months. I don't plan on giving any juice until she's 2 years old (recommended by our pediatrician). I did the same thing with DS no juice till after 2.

My 10 month old is teething.. he has been since he turned 6 months. I don't like to give him tylenol all of the time so I found these teething tablets that work great! They are homeopathic teething tablets made by Hyland's. They have no side effects and are 100% natural. I have found that they actually work better for my LO than the tylenol did. Give them a try!
