I have been giving my 6 month old baby Aptamil follow-on milk for 2 weeks now and his poo is very watery...

Anyone experience the same?

I am not sure if I should go back to the previous one we were using.

You don’t need to switch to the follow on milk at all, it’s mainly a marketing thing cs it means they can use offers / give boots points or nectar points on it.

I think it’s got extra iron in but I wouldn’t expect it to cause a stomach issue. Did it start at the same time you started solid food / purée?

Ooh teething? My DDs poo turns watery and acidic when she’s cutting a new tooth

I would avoid all follow on milk as the op has said

As above - my HV said follow on milks only exist for marketing as they're not allowed to advertise baby first formulas, so they created and advertise follow on products for brand recognition and to hopefully boost their baby formula sales which they can't advertise!

Thanks for your advices.
I guess it could be teething, or even my purees smile
I think I will switch back to the one I was giving him before.
