Is Feeding A 6-7 Month Old Baby Whole Milk Correct?

Can he drinking whole milk? Is this the best option out of all the milk available? He does not want to drink any more formulas so we are going to switch and I be just wondering what was what the best type of milk is for his age. Also, should I boil the milk on the stove top before feed it to him or should I not, or can I do both? Thank you very much for your answers!
Unless instructed to do so by your pediatrician, babies shouldn't have cow's milk before one year dated. They can't properly digest it, and it could cause a lot of stomach problems.
Breastmilk or formula. Whole milk shouldn't be introduced until 9 months at the earliest. Whole milk can cause the bleeding in the stomach lining. I will include an article if I can find it.

ETA~ “The main concern is about iron deficiency, and that problem starts within the early months of a baby’s life,” explains Robert Issenman, chief of paediatric gastroenterology and nutrition at McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton. “When babies lower than six months or so are fed regular cow’s milk, they have minute amounts of blood loss in the GI tract. This blood loss make them likely to become anemic. By nine months, drinking regular cow’s milk no longer causes this bleeding.”

Wait until 9 months...there's no *need* to wait until 12 months. Your baby isn't going to die.
No he can't drink whole milk until he's AT LEAST 1 year old-fashioned. He still MUST have breastmilk and/or formula at 6-7 months old. I would not boil the milk on the stove...if you want to warm the bottles buy a bottle electric fire but if he will take the bottles at room temperature that's fine too, its not necessary to thaw out them unless he prefers it that way. Here's a link to a bottle warmer. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.d…

A bottle furnace will make it much easier to warm your babies bottles...whatever you do don't microwave them, it's not not dangerous because there can be hot spots that scold your baby's mouth! Source(s): Mom to a 15 month old boy
Your little one should not have any milk until he is at least 1 year old. Your infant still needs all of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals in formula. I'm no doctor but i would muse that taking your baby off of formula this early may result in him to be malnourished. The best thing to do in your situation is to have a word to your sons pediatrician.
Answers:    NO

A baby under 12 months of age should just drink water, breast milk, formula and occasionally some juice if you desire.

A baby beneath 12 months of age does not have the digestive system to handle cows milk yet. If he refuse to drink any formula or breast milk, you need to take him to the doctor immediately. Source(s): I've raise two children through that age.
cows milk shouldn't be given until 1 year or pretty darn close...I think they make a transition formula,but ...I think that one even starts at 9 months...your kid is getting most of his nutrients from formula and/or breastmilk..it's best to breastfeed as long as possible,but formula feed for 1 year...
You shouldn't nurture your baby any kind of milk until he is a year old. interval. Why is your baby not taking formula anymore? You should talk to your pediatrician about this and see what he/she say. Is he eating solids because once they start eating solids they fill up and don't stipulation as much formula but they need their formula until they are a year old and should not be given milk until then.
No. Babies should not drink whole milk until they are 1 year older. It's ok to start transitioning at 11 months, but definitely not at 6 or 7. At that age babies need either breast milk or formula for sustenance.
Yeah as expected, if you wanna kill him..
A child that age should be receiving only breastmilk or formula.
No no no! Babies can not have whole milk as a drink until one year old, their tummies cannot digest it contained by large amounts before then! At nine months you can put small amounts of unbroken milk into his food (rice cereal, mashed potato or pumpkin) but he can NOT have it in ample amounts.
Most doctors recommend that you wait for whole milk until they are 12 months. Since he is not interested within formula any longer maybe you should mix it, (1/2 form. & 1/2 whole milk) he still needs the nutrients surrounded by the formula to grow. Please ask your doctor first.
Unless you are getting the milk straight from the cow, there is no need to boil it.
