Not only that, but it’s also lacking in many of the essential vitamins and minerals that your baby needs in order to grow. In fact, cow’s milk can be so bad for your baby, that it can cause internal bleeding.
After twelve months, however, your baby’s body will be able to process cow's milk. It then becomes an important food source, giving your baby calcium, vitamin D, vitamin A and phosphorus. It helps to build strong bones, regulate muscle control and aids in blood coagulation.
If your one year old child does not like cow’s milk, or does not want to drink it when you offer it to him or her, there are a few things you can try.
