My youngest nephew has turned two years old last month. He is not an infant anymore. He is now a toddler. Here is how they term it:
Child’s Age (Definitions May Vary)
1 month = newborn
1-12 months = infant
12-5 years = toddler
My nephew is growing fast and he is getting smarter everyday. He remembers things especially what he hears from his parents. So they better be careful not to let him hear their arguments.
My sister-in-law is having concerns about the right milk for her son. She stopped nursing him when he turned one year old. From then on, she started giving him formula. Now that my nephew has turned two, she is wondering if giving him skim milk is fine. Actually, my nephew can drink skim milk. But it should be appropriate with his age. Like Bear Brand 1 Plus. It is made specifically for toddlers. And when he turns three, there is Bear Brand 3 Plus that she can buy for him too.
Milk is very important for good nutrition especially for children. I always advice my niece and nephews to drink milk at least twice a day.
