  • Could be. I was always told that you are supposed to wait until after a year old to introduce whole milk. Sounds like it's not agreeing with him very well.

  • Usually you have to ask "what changed?" And that's what seems to have changed. So no more whole milk for now. Technically you're supposed to wait till one year anyway, so put it off.

  • Could be. When I introduced whole milk, I started mixing it in with breastmilk or formula--I had to supplement--one quarter cow's milk to three-quarters, then half and half, then three-quarters to one quarter, so the change was gradual.

  • I'd be calling the doctor. White poops are not normal
