Why is cow's milk not recommended for infants?

Babies can't digest cow's milk as completely or easily as breast milk or formula. Cow's milk contains high concentrations of protein and minerals, which can tax your baby's immature kidneys. Cow's milk doesn't have the right amounts of iron, vitamin C, and other nutrients for infants.

Likewise, people ask, is it OK to give your baby cow's milk at 11 months?

Q: It is safe to give my 11-month-old baby regular milk instead of formula? A: You should play it safe and wait another month until your baby turns 1. Also, formula is richer than cow's milk in nutrients that growing babies need. Babies who start drinking cow's milk early are more likely to develop anemia, for example.
