Hi, New mommy on the boards. I was just wondering this also. My little girl is about to turn 11 months and she is on the Simulac Sensitive formula. Does that make a difference on what kind of real milk she can have? I'm afraid she is going to be lactose intolerant now.
It is ok, but you have to be careful with which milk you choose. I had to start my daughter on whole milk when she was 6 months old, because she is allergic to formula and I just couldn't make enough milk to give her. We started her out on goat milk first for just a few days and then we saw an allergist (she had a bad reaction to the formula) and he told us to go ahead and give her whole milk, but to make sure it was organic. We have been giving her Horizon whole milk since then and she has done great. I just make sure she gets milk without all the hormones added.
