    Ok so max is eating the 6+ months which is mixed grains with fruit in it ..lately he hasent wanted any of it weather with water or formula ..then DH decided to try with cows milk and he ate it all :dohh: Is this ok for now ..he wont be drinking it alone but mixed with his rusk or cereal ..

    He is also having baby yogurt so I figured the lil bit of milk wont hurt him right ?

    My MW was speaking about this in one of our ante natal classes and said that cow's milk is much higher in salt and can damage babies kidneys so should only be fed after 12 months.

    With such a small amount I don't know. I assume she was talking about bottle feeding. Can you ring your health visitor or GP and ask them?

    You can introduce full fat milk at 6 months+ but ONLY in foods such as cereal & cooking if you home cook any of babies meals but never as a drink which your not doing.

    Shes not too far off 6 months but I'd personally wait til closer or that of the advice/ok from HV although I'm not much trusting of them either (so much conflicting between diff HVs its unreal).
