When can cow milk be given to baby?

Wait until your baby is a year old before giving her cow's milk as a main drink. It's fine to use a little cow's milk in your baby's food once she's started on solids. Yoghurt and mild cheese are also fine to feed your baby from six months.

Consequently, what age can babies drink water?

In general, your baby shouldn't drink water until he's about 6 months old. Until then, he gets all the hydration he needs from breast milk or formula, even in hot weather. Once your baby is 6 months old, it's okay to give him sips of water when he's thirsty.

Can you give babies cow's milk in cereal?

Once your baby's weaning at six months old, it's fine to mix small amounts of cow's milk with her food. However, you should avoid offering cow's milk any earlier than this. From six months, your baby could try foods made with milk, such as pancakes, homemade cheese sauce, scrambled eggs, or potatoes mashed with milk.
