    I think I started cheese and yogurt around 8 months, but held off on plain cow's milk until a year. Cheese and yogurt are fermented, and thus easier for babies to digest than unfermented dairy products.

    I tried yogurt first to make sure there wasn't an obvious milk allergy from that but we were probably doing cheese by then. Most kids really like it and it's a decent source of fat and protein!
