Q.

MILK

My son is 13 months old and has a healthy appetite. He currently weighs 12,6 kg. I have put him on full cream milk since he was a year and of this he drinks about 4 bottles a day. My sister-in-law however says he must be on formula till he is 2 years old as I am making him allergic and a diabetic. All the other moms at work also started their children on cow milk at 12 months. Your opinion please?
