would honestly talk to your pedi most pedi's dont recommend it til their a yr old if you were to ask my brother in law they switched their first son over to milk round 10 months old i waited til my first son was a yr old and will wait with my baby til hes a yr old but like i said ask your pedi for the best recommendation on this
Roy Benaroch, MD responded:
It's tough for babies to digest a big serving of whole milk when they're less than a year old-- cow's milk proteins are not really ideal for human babies. In commercial cow's milk-based formulas, the proteins are broken down some, so they're almost "predigested".

A little bit of milk is fine, or a few servings a day of dairy products (like cheese or yogurt.) But a big bottle of cow's milk really isn't such a good idea.
