I'd like to change to ff after breast feeding DD2 for 10 weeks. I already tried a few weeks ago and aswell as having difficulty getting her to take a bottle, she had terrible constipation for about a week afterwards (only having taken maybe 3-4oz of formula.). I'm using tommee tippee bottles. Any advice welcome �� Thanks.

Try a different type of formula. SMA gave DS constipation when I started using it at 7 months. We used Cow and Gate.
You could also need to try a different style of bottle if she doesn't do with the Tommee Tippee.

You could also try the comfort version as well x

Yes try different brands. Stick to the first stage milk for now - comfort/staydown etc is designed for reflux, not constipation, so it's thicker.

Sometimes they take the ready made better than the powdered stuff, you could try that while she's getting used to it.
