You shouldn't give him cows milk until he is 12 months old because it not only can cause digestion issues because their bodies aren't ready for the complex proteins, but it is also the major cause of anemia in infants. Not only will he not be getting much needed iron, but it can also DEPLETE the iron stores in his body.

You need to investigate why he won't take formula, and maybe discuss alternatives with your doctor.
