am i being impractical by not introducing cow's milk?

Post by Mrs. Lainez on Thu Jan 24, 2013 8:06 am

my daughter is 13.5 months old, and i have been buying breastmilk for her for the past three months. this has been because my milk supply is very low due to pregnancy (23 weeks). i decided to buy breastmilk for her because she was EBF until that point. her diet is currently about 80% breastmilk and 20% solids. i'm a true believer in the superiority of breastmilk. i'm just wondering if i'm being impractical or not by continuing to spend ~$16 per day on the breastmilk instead of introducing cow's milk in some quantity. i do plan to tandem nurse, and consider this situation to be temporary--until my milk comes in. my daughter still nurses four times a day, but i doubt there's anything much in there...

I don't think so! WHO recommends breastfeeding until age 2. She's still getting great benefits from it. $16 a day is out of my own price range but if you have it, It's worth it for sure!

You can try goats milk which is a lot gentler on the stomach. But cow milk isn't too bad. Too much milk however, can cause anemia... So make sure she has a balanced diet. Good luck!
