comment What is the difference between yǐqián (以前) and zhīqián (之前)?
@Dan. I think it's perfectly fine to say " 我三岁以前,我只能喝牛奶". But your 2nd example sounds right. Anyway, I do not think this question itself is a big deal. Under 95% scenarios, people will understand the semantics no matter which word is used.
