    I make mashed potatoes and mac and cheese with 2% milk.  Yogurt is made with whole milk, and she gets regular cheese.

    DD gets cheese, yogurt and mac/cheese. They have dairy in them yes. It's different when you are feeding them amounts of milk they can digest as compared to a bottle or sippy full at an early age.

    It's not that milk can't cross a baby's lips in any form until 1 year ... unless of course there is reason to believe that baby may have an allergy to milk.  It's just that cow's milk should not replace breastmilk or formula until 1 year.  Baby can have foods containing milk prior to 1 year.  So, yogurt, mashed potatoes, etc are all ok.  And, my particular peditrician wants us to start replacing formula with whole milk at 11.5 months and be completely weaned from formula by baby's 1 year check-up.  If baby were still breastfed, that wouldn't be the recommendation of course.  But, we weaned at 7.5 months.

    you're back with the questions i see.

     

    milk as a drink =/= milk in products.  cheese and yogurt have cultures in them, that help with digestion.
