Is it safe to feed my 9 mos old baby yogurt for infants and toddlers labelled 6 mos and up, which contain cow's milk?

In brief: Safe if not allergic

Cow milk products like yogurt are ok for infants.
I encourage use of those with living lactobacillus like danactive or activia when I use oral antibiotics as they help baby repopulate their digestive tract with healthy bacteria.The cow milk issue is not a prohibition but an understanding that it is designed for calfs not kids. Bovine products are ok when part of a balanced approach to nutrition.
