DS is 9 months old, BFed and slowly starting on solids.
Yesterday my husband gave him the banana and cow's milk porridge that I had made specifically for his older sister.

He seemed fine with it, although he was very windy in the evening. Is there something else I should look out for? I'm just paranoid about possible allergies.

from 6 months , babies can have cows' milk in cooking, just not as a main drink

don;t think you have anything to worry about really

esp. if he has had other dairy things and been ok

I am sure he is/ will be fine. In the past it would have been considered fine to give a baby a small amount of cow's milk or to use cow's milk in cooking.

cow'a milk is not suitabe as a main drink because it lacks iron.
