Doctor's Note

Today is the first of a three-video series on the latest evidence implicating bovine casomorphin in apnea, crib death, and autism--stay tuned! In the meantime, help yourself to the 49 other videos on dairy, 44 videos on child health, and hundreds of other videos on more than a thousand subjects.

      Hi Michael
      So you are suggesting to avoid cow milk baby formula?
      what should we pay attention in a vegetarian formula?
      Thank you in advance

        The best food for infants is breast milk followed by a transition to whole foods appropriately prepared given the infants age. Most young mother’s I encounter tell me their doctors recommend avoiding cow’s milk until age 2. I would extend that indefinitely as I see no data to support it’s use when adequate calories are available from healthier alternatives. It is important to work with your physicians in deciding what alternatives are most appropriate as far as non-dairy formula’s. PCRM’s Nutrition for Kids is an excellent resource for older children. Unfortunately I haven’t seen a good resource for infants who are not able to be breast fed.

          What if breast feeding is not an option?

            Donor milk

            I agree that using donor milk is an option for women who for whatever reason are unable to breast feed. Although we like to think we can “engineer” a replacement product as good as the original product we are certainly not there yet. However if donor milk is unavailable you should work with a knowledgeable health care professional.
