Milks

Lin

We've been buying our child (17mos.) organic milk pretty much since she started drinking milk around 1yr. Has anyone else made the switch to something else like nut milks? It's just getting expensive, I got laid off and I can't imagine I'm the 1st to think a child could go completely off the cow's milk and on an alternative.

    I give my son whole milk and my milk. Soy milk is pretty bad for you. It might seem good but it’s not. Have you ever thought of coconut milk? Goats milk?

    Instead of switching to a cheaper milk brand or nut milk. Could try shopping around for better prices at ALDIS or Trader Joes. All organic milks are $3.99 at both grocery stores. Try looking for one in your area. Could help to reduce the cost that way. They also have a nice variety of nut milk to choose from.

    We just use regular (non-organic) local whole milk......it’s literally half the price but retains the calcium and nutrition that some milk alternatives don’t. It’s also basically what every generation before this one grew up drinking.....and they’re all fine.....🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

    We went from breastmilk to formula for a couple months when my supply was too low, then we went to almond milk. For extra vitamin d and calcium we give our daughter a drop of vitamins in her milk, but she’s been doing great on almond milk. The only problem we have had was an issue with a daycare that we looked at being a nut free facility, but her day care now is great and we bring in a carton every few weeks and she’s good to go for breakfast, lunch and snack!
