I was told by the dietician it was fine as am ingredient or on cereal from 6 months but not as a milk drink till a year. I specifically checked if it was the same guidelines as cows milk as dd2 is allergic and I don't think either of us could stand the idea of neocate on her cereal! (Dietician agreed with us on that one!)

Is there a reason that you wouldn't use cows milk for cereal?

Thank you Ex. I would like to use it to make porridge. DC is on solids but still being bf.

It would be ok to use in cooking as an ingredient but not ok to give as a main drink. The only things that should be given as a main drink under 1 yr is breast milk or formula milk.

Is it ok to give almond milk to a seven months old? That's it really smile.
