Best to ask a nurse: Physician training and nurse training are very different. From a physician's perspective, i would want a nurse to monitor vital signs and cardiac telemetry. Nurses would obviously want to check on IV site, drug mixture, drug compatibility (if infusing more than one drug), etc.

Yes: Cow milk one week before her birthday is fine. Also consider trying almond milk and rice milk as alternatives. It is nice to have choices.
