    Default cow's milk/products?

    I know for cow's milk it's not recommended before 12months. But I hear a lot of people discussing cheese and yogurt... are those ok before 12months? If so when?

    Yogurt can be introduced earlier because the milk proteins are more broken down, and there are enzymes/cultures to help with digestion. We started Joshua with whole milk yogurt around 8 or 9 months. You would just want to watch out for reactions, as many LO's have temporary sensitivities and or allergies to cows milk products. We were lucky that Joshua didn't, and now he doesn't drink cows milk, but he loves yogurt and cheeses.
