The digestive system of a baby is not so developed. The high protein content in cows milk makes it one of the unsafe foods for a baby. It becomes tough for them to digest the protein. On the other hand, breast milk is much safer for feeding the baby. It contains all the nutrients needed for the proper growth of a baby. So, it is better to stick to breast or formula milk as an ideal baby food instead of cow's milk. Moreover, cow's milk may also damage the baby kidney.
