welcome to healthcare magic,
i would suggest dont start cows milk until your baby is 1 year old.
when introducing cows milk introduce slowly and boil the milk before you give.
before you give it you have to warm it not too much but lukewarm.
for now continue with formula milk and breast milk until one year of age
hope to have answered your query
