Strange as follow on milk contains more iron so if anything I would have thought it would cause constipation. Have you looked at her diet as well? When dd was about this age she had a lot of diarrhoea (sp?) and hv said to keep food diary to see if any pattern. Could also be connected to teething? It does seem a bit of a coincidence that you have recently stop bf though. Hopefully someone else might have some bright ideas!

Do you need to give her milk? She's 14mo, lots of children her age just eat yoghurt and cheese and milk in things like porridge rather than formula or cows milk.

Sorry,(d9gressing here) but I read your post as 2 weeks of Spelling Diarrhoea which struck a cord with me as I have a new job in a medical environment & had to learn that


to get the spelling right!!

or the other one: Doesn't It Always Run Really Horribly Over Each Ankle

DS is 8 months and I am blaming his constipation on the follow on milk!! DD got gastro-enteritis at 14 months (or so) could it be a bug??

suwoo, poss so, dr said 10 days to clear put of system, so seeing what the sample brings up tommorow ( if they have results back ) shes been at a nursery that ive since taken her out of ( a different story ) i dont think their cleanliness was upto much ! poss got it from there

Now is the time to recount a story a friend told me. His mum was a primary school teacher, and you have to rmember many people used to believe the myth you could get all sorts of ailments from being cold or wet. One of her pupil's mothers wrote an apology letter: 'Please excuse Jimmy's absence from school yesterday as he had diarrhoea through a hole in his sock.'
