    When is a good time to introduce Cow's Milk to a child? My daughter is 1 year 3 weeks and I have tried 3 or 4 times and she throws every bit of it up. Any suggestions?

    You can start cow's milk easy at her age. I introduced both cow's milk and solids in the same manner. Anytime new items are added to your child's diet, her digestive system needs to figure out what to do with it. Gently. Too much at once will naturally send the system into overload and reject, or should I say eject the unwanted intruder. Slow is best. Mix alittle of new "adultish" item, into whatever they are accustomed to and slowly add more and more of new item, until the entire item is accepted. If this doesn't work, she may be allergic. See your pediatrician. I hope this helps.

    What is the difference between the nonfat milk in Enfamil and regular cow's milk? Similac makes a formula for toddlers, which is usually defined as at least a one year-old, which may be better. I'm trying to keep updated on the growing trend in baby formula and baby food.
