Re: Travelling without 11 month old -- milk dilemma
Until a year, I think it makes sense to use either donor milk or formula if you're going to supplement. Not because there's something magical about the first birthday, but simply because babies are still growing and developing exceptionally fast at and around that point. And not because cow's milk is poison- it's just not recommended for babies under a year.
I definitely would have her try the supplement before you leave. That way, if you find out she won't take it, you still have time to change your plans.
Do you have a trusted source, if you're going to use donated milk?
