My 8 month old is still breastfeeding but eating everything her older siblings eat just about. She won’t take formula she just spits it out. She drinks water and juice out of cups and/or bottles…I want to know if its ok to give her a bottle of milk for bed?

Ask your question

  • Cows milk can badly constipated a bub if they aren’t ready so if u do wanna give it a go make sure its really watered down



  • I reckon better cows milk than formula to be honest. Although they recommend wait until 12 months, I would give her a little and see how she goes.



  • Possibly could be fine, I would just give it a go, I can’t see it doing any harm at that stage.



  • They say no, but I had mine on cows milk early. I did start with it watered down to make sure it wasn’t too strong for their intestines and they never looked back



  • Ask your GP. I thought no cow’s milk before 12 months. But if she eats everything else, it might be ok for her. Only thing to watch is some allergies mightstart if foods are introduced too young.
