the answer is yes! Different international organizations recommend the introduction of dairy products from the beginning of complementary feeding (around 6 months of age).
However, remember that breast milk and/or infant formula will continue to be the main source of dairy for babies during their first year of life.
Yogurt certainly provides a wide variety of nutrients (protein, calcium, vitamins, probiotics, etc.), but at the same time contains low levels of iron. This is why it is important to ensure the supply of this important nutrient with other food sources.
If you decide to offer yogurt to your baby, it should be full fat, plain, unsweetened and pasteurized.
