Formula or breast milk at best. There is too many things in cow's milk that can cause problems for a child this age. Did your doctor not tell you this?

Unless there is a medical reason otherwise (so you should really be talking to the baby's doctor) you can begin to introduce tiny amounts of food at 6 months. Well mashed banana, avocado, or sweet potato are good starter foods.... but again, speaking to your baby's doctor FIRST is important.

Speak to the baby's doctor on that. We are not health professionals and we do not know your child's history.

Yes, formula for sure. Cow's milk or soy milk does not have the nutrients for proper growth and brain development.

Formula for sure. You shouldn't give cows milk until at least 12 months.
