Its not the fact it gains weight, it contains salt and its harmful to babies as they can't digest it properly. It also doesnt have all vitamins in it like breastmilk and formula so definitely wait off till 1 yr old!

i started my kids on whole milk at 9 months old with my dr's permission. they were all big kids & ate a healthy balance of food, so were getting all the nutrients they needed without formula. but i was told that a babies digestive tract is not mature enough until 9-12 months old to handle cow's milk.
