When a baby's baby food begins, the question is what ingredients can be used. In that respect, milk is only cow's milk, and it is a nutritious food that you want to drink immediately, but when should you give it to your baby? This time, I will explain the timing and precautions for feeding milk to babies.
When can I feed my baby milk?
Some moms may think, “Milk is cow's milk, so it's better to drink it as an affordable source of nutrition.”
Milk is often found in kindergartens, nursery schools, and school lunches, and is considered to be indispensable for the growth of children. However, giving it to a baby can have a negative effect on the body. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not give milk until you are one year old or older.
This is because the ingredients of breast milk and milk are different. For example, breast milk contains only about one-third of the minerals such as calcium, but contains about 1.5 times more carbohydrates called lactose.
In this way, breast milk and milk have different composition ratios, so when a baby with an underdeveloped digestive function drinks milk, it cannot be processed well and may cause illness.
