COW MILK CAN CAUSE ANAEMIA TO LESS THAN 6 MONTHS BABIES
















Is it true that breastfeeding children below 6 months cow milk regularly, they will develop anemia in the future🥛?

Babies younger than 6 months should not be given cow milk at all (if supplementing breast milk, use formula). Cow milk is hard to digest for infants, and doesn't contain the right amount of vitamins for a growing baby.

Boiling the cow milk will destroy even more vitamins. Beyond 6 months, cow milk could cautiously be entered into a baby's diet along with solids, but breast milk/formula should still be the bulk of the baby's food.

If a baby drinks too much cow milk instead of breast milk/formula, the baby will develop ANAEMIA since cow milk, unlike breast milk and formula, is NOT A GOOD SOURCE OF IRON .

Even beyond one year old, if a child fees on cow milk and doesn't eat enough iron-rich foods such as LEAFY VEGETABLES and MEAT , the child will become ANAEMIC .
