Why  are infants advised to stop drinking formula at 12 months? What can happen of my baby starts drinking cow milk at 11 months?

Misunderstanding: Cow's milk is allowed at 12 months but this doesn't mean formula has to be stopped at 12 months. A protein in the cow's milk called "heat labile protein" causes occult bleeding from infants' intestine and results in anemia. The intestinal mucosa become more resistant to the protein by 12 moths of age. ...Read more

Can my 6 month old baby use cold and cough syrup if so what do u recommend for him concerned mother

Can my 6 month old baby use cold and cough syrup if so what do u recommend for him concerned mother

I wouldn't: The nasal & airway structure of young infants is quite different from older kids or adults. Studies have shown no benefit of cough/cold preparations to kids under 6. They also reflect a large number of ER visits and poison control calls from these meds. If you need something to do, keep track of fluid intake.That is more important overall & more likely to help baby. ...Read more
