Q.

WHAT MILK IS BEST 4 BABY

My 14th month old daughter has been on soya milk for the past 9 months as she has dust/insect related allergies and we felt that steering clear from dairy products would be an advantage. But soya milk is expensive and not always accessible and I am unsure if introducing her to cow's milk is the correct thing to do at this stage and if so should i try millk powder instead and which one????

I can see no reason why you should continue avoid ordinary cow's milk at this age. There is no difference in the antigenicity of raw cow's milk or powdered milk.
