No. A five month old is too young to drink cow's milk. At five months a baby will not be able to properly digest the cow milk. It can cause stomach pains, gas, and constipation or diarrhea. Cow milk also doesn't have enough vitamins and nutrients for a baby and formula or breastmilk is need for proper growth and brain development.
