To gear him up for it I was mixing his bottles/sippy cups with half formula and half milk before switching him altogether, but now that he is on pretty much ALL milk he poops almost immediately after drinking it. EVERY TIME. Is this a sign that he should not be drinking whole milk or may have some kind of reaction to it? He seems fine other than the constant poops after his milk. I am not totally inexperienced but my daughter never had this problem so this is all new to me!

Water is the only beverage your child needs. Cow milk is for baby cows, and humans don't need it. Like many other nutrients, and despite the claims of the dairy industry, plant based calcium is superior to animal based. While cow mild is rich in protein, the kind of protein that is contains is casein, while human milk protein is lactalbumin, with is easily digestible; more the 50% of casein isn’t digested and can cause health problems later in life, like food allergies.
