  • Nope, that's perfectly normal to see some changes in his BM. Just keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn't get constipated, as sometimes switching to whole milk can do that. =) Then you can always give him apple or prune juice to help that along.

    GL! =)

  • This is normal and definitely will not be the only change in his pooh you notice as his eating and drinking habits change.
