How old should a toddler be before starting regular food and staring the toddler on whole vitamin d milk?

Weaning at 6 m. Table food when he/she has teeth at about 1 year. Cut or chop table food to appropriate size and feed with a spoon.
6-7 months. Once your child can sit up, strained and puree foods should be introduced first. One at a time. You can increase the texture as the child gets more teeth and has useful chewing. Whole milk should not be started before one year. Some recommend breast or formula up to 18 months.

11 month old (1yr on march 18th) is it safe to give her vitamin d milk? She is not allergic to any food or dairy...If not, out of curiosity, why?

Many hazards. Most doctors would say milk is fine to give but there is good reason for caution; if milk is not organic it is likely from cows given bovine growth hormone (possible cause of cancer) and fed gmo corn.

Not the best way. If you're deficient in vitamin d, drinking milk is not the best way to replenish this. In the us, most milk is fortified with about 100 iu of vitamin d3/cup. This is not the active form, either. Given that the usual recommended daily dose of vitamin d is 1000 iu, you would have to drink 10 cups if getting your "d" solely from milk. Better to use a supplement if you need extra "d" by testing. Read more...

0-4. If you are drinking it for the vitamin d, you would need 5 quarts to get what is the minimum for most adults, that is 2000 units daily. If for calcium, each glass has about 300 mg of calcium so intake would depend on your age and sex. It is best to spread out the calcium source because the ingested calcium lasts only 6-12 hours. At low intakes, the body will take it from bone. Read more...
