Here are a few milk facts you should know:
Whole milk is not suggested for babies under the age of 12 months since their digestive systems are not yet ready. Iron deficiency anemia can be caused by drinking a lot of milk or starting it too early in life, especially if your kid isn’t getting enough iron-rich foods like meat, eggs, and fortified cereals.
Because of its high fat content, whole milk is essential between the ages of 12 and 24 months. This is critical for proper brain development.
Milk consumption should be between 16 and 18 ounces per day for children aged 1 to 2. It’s fine if a breastfed infant doesn’t take cow’s milk immediately away; breastfeeding is still recommended until the child is two years old or for as long as you desire.
The use of a cup promotes good cheek, bone, and jaw growth, as well as healthier teeth. A sippy cup, on the other hand, is OK as long as it does not lead to excessive drinking.
