The World Health Organization recommends feeding exclusively breastfed babies during the first six months of life for optimal growth, development and health. You can give your small cooked food containing sheep's milk or goat's milk after 6 months of age. You should not give your little sheep or goat milk to drink until you are 12 months old, as they do not contain the right balance of nutrients your child needs. If your baby is 12 months or older and you decide to give him or her sheep milk, please make sure it is pasteurized. If you are thinking of giving your child sheep or goat milk, or have any questions about your baby's nutrition, please be sure to consult your pediatrician who knows your baby the best.
