My husband and I have made the decision (since our son is only a month away from 1) to go ahead and start him on whole cow's milk. He's eaten ice cream with me before, and hasn't shown any signs of lactose problems, and so far, we haven't had a problem with the milk itself. Of course we are going to need a few more days to watch and make sure, but I do a lot of research (throughout my pregnancy and every day since :) ) so I know that doctors and many others recommend waiting until 12 months and all are very urgent and specific about that. I don't see one month making an overwhelming difference...but maybe there is another mom who has done this who could offer reassurance?
