Milk?: Infants need breast milk or formula till 12 months. Cow's milk & milk products should be limited to 16-21 ounces/day after a year to avoid anemia & constipation. If he has hard, pebbly stools or strains to have bm's, see your pediatrician, who can also tell you if his weight/length ratio is average.
