Hello mom's... My baby girl recently turned 9 months and I weaned her from breast milk and she's already eating solids including cow milk(no formula).. She's crawls, stands for a short time and she's walks with the support of furnitures in the house n she just started growing teeth.. Am scared because a lot of people say that it will make her sick and stop her from walking on time.. And am feeling very bad.. Pls I need advice

Just stop giving it to her and give her formula or breast milk. Right now, she should still be practicing with food. That should not be her main source of nutrition.

It won't stop her from walking, but it could cause life long irreversible digestive damage. Breast milk or infant approved formula is the best and safest choice for your child until at least 12 months.

I introduced her to cows milk a month ago... I hope it hasn't done any damage and it's not too late

Has absolutely nothing to do with her walking, but Dove hit the nail on the head. Babies are not meant to digest cows milk. There digestive system cannot break it down properly. It is not recommended to introduce it until 12 months or older.
