Ask Holly: Alternative to Cow’s Milk?

Hi Holly-

My daughter is turning one in March and I wanted to know what you suggest as an alternative to cow’s milk.


Rancho Viejo, TX

Hi Veronica!

You can try goat milk.  It is often easier to digest for babies.  If you decide to give her cow’s milk, try to find it non-homogenized (not un-pasteurized which is raw but the kind where the cream will rise to the top).  It is better for all of us in that form.

This is a question I am asked quite often.  Click here for more suggestions.

Congratulations on your baby’s milestone birthday!
