Hi everyone!

I have been breastfeeding for 16months now Smile
Just wanted to know if anyone gives there child cows milk as a drink as everyone keeps saying to me including my health visitor is she not drinking cows milk? Or is she getting everything she needs from breast milk.
I put it in her porridge ,scrambled eggs etc..but she won’t touch it as a drink.
Many thanks!

I am sure the child knows better, what she needs. Don't force her to drink the cow milk, if she doesn't want.
And your daughter can get everything she needs from your breast milk. You shouldn't worry about it.

Hi,


I also think that you should not worry too much about it. I guess there is a reason why your baby is rejecting cow milk. My baby was also rejecting cow milk based formula when I tried to feed her, she also had very strange reactions until we did found out that she is allergic to it. So we decided to try it with goat milk formula (https://myorganicformula.com/collections/holle-organic-formula) and suddenly she took the bottle without any hesitation.
Rely on your baby, even if she might just not like the taste. Trust in her Smile
Have a good nights sleep,
