Human beings are herbivores, so a vegan diet is not really an option but our natural diet =) It is animal products what is unnatural (unfortunately, we are brainwashed and indoctrinated since birth by the industries that profit from selling us unhealthy products).
Vegan diets are scientifically proven to be beneficial for the development of infants (they show higher I.Q.), and indeed there are diseases related to animal products that start appearing in early infancy (atherosclerosis, diabetes, autism, etc.)
People just have to make sure that they eat a good variety of plant foods, as whole and unprocessed as possible: nuts, legumes, greens, roots, grains, fruits, etc.
But don't take mt word for it, check out the science =) nutritionfacts.org/ offers good advice for all ages, and this website has a special section for infants: veganhealth.org/
Hope it helps and you and your family can start living as healthy as nature intended! Not contributing to the suffering and death of other sentient beings or to environmental destruction is also a good thing, of course =D
Make sure to get a B12 supplement! This is not a vegan issue, everybody should get it. And D supplement if you don't expose your skin to the sun (but it's silly to buy stuff when it's so easy to get it naturally).
I know two vegan children from birth (mother and father are vegan) and they are happy, healthy and intelligent girls. The eldest is 8 and younger is 1.
All nutrients required by the human body can be sourced from non animal sources. There is plenty of information both here and on the Internet on where you can find all nutrients. As long as you are sensible (not to much junk food) and eat heathily you can thrive on a vegan diet.

Lomedin: Learned by chance that Kat Von D is vegan. Didn't have a clue who she was before.

Vegan: I'm on an antinatilist group and only found out about her on that. Had no idea who she was before as never heard of her.

Lomedin: I guess they were roasting her for having a baby? Hahaha

Vegan: Yep. Apparently she used to be antinatilist.

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
