    Its high in saturated fat. Not sure if that kind of fat is good for any body - even babies. It also has lot of sugar. But we do use that in our cooking

    Yes, babies need saturated fat for brain development. That's why BM is high in it! That's also why peds recommend a full fat milk replacement (if not BFing) for at least the first 2 years.

    for coconut milk (especially for vegetarians)!

    I would question it because it's a tree nut.

    No it's not. It's a pitted fruit, like a peach or cherry.
