Hi there - just started DS on cows milk and he's having runny poos. Is this normal while he gets used to the change (has been on Aptimel until now)?

no idea but watching with interest and to bump as I have the same thing with DD, 12m.

DS1 got constipated when we moved him from 1st milk to 2nd milk. Eventually we weaned him onto the 2nd milk by making up his feeds with e.g. 6oz 1st milk + 1oz 2nd milk and then slowly swapping them oz by oz. You could try something similar as it could just be the change overloading his system.

Hope that helps!

Thanks academic - I was thinking of this but had put it off because I thought it would be such a faff. I think I should do it now though - like you say, probably overloading his system with something he's not used to
