In brief: Confusing question

Bovine milk in high quantities can cause small amounts of intestinal bleeding.
Kids who develop an unhealthy pattern of excessive bovine milk consumption can become anemic enough to need a blood transfusion.Most recommend no > 16-20 oz/day, which seems well tolerated. Any food/formula consumed in excess of need can cause problems. You can work out the age related specifics with your doc.
