milk, cow

This is without question the best food for baby cows. It is an acceptable food for humans in moderation. For babies, it must be heat-treated to make it more digestible, and supplemented with vitamins and iron. Cow milk binds iron in the intestine and carries it out in the stool, and in excessive amounts leads to iron deficiency. Additionally, a fair number of babies are intolerant of milk protein to one degree or another, and about 4% are actually allergic to cow milk with varying degrees of severity.
