Thanks. I'm not breastfeeding so can he still have it? Do they get it on their own, if you see what I mean, or do they catch it from mother. I was breast feeding but stopped about 2 weeks ago. It's developed since he's been on foruma. x

he can get it on his own if youve started formula it could be the formula if you wipe it or give water does it go?
