my twin boys are going to be 1 next week. we started whole milk at 11 months so they would be ready to drink it when our WIC checks change from formula to whole milk next week.
I was told it could be constipating and it is. They've had really, crummy, dry, pepply poop. its been weird colors also. i mean its been, white, green, white and green, orange, and dark. and I mean its weird, today tyler had two pepples that were dark dark brown and one that was orange.
plus they dont really want to eat lately. its kind of meal by meal. Taden ate well today whereas Tyler didnt.
but they've been REALLY cranky for the last few weeks. they had colds, but now they dont have many symptoms.
what should I do for their constipation? (they wont take much water, been trying that)
should I be worried?
Babies need 32 oz formula until 12 mo. Formula was invented because cow's milk makes babies ill or dead. Babies should have NO cow's milk until after 12 mo. At 12 mo you can wean babies straight from formula to water. Formula is made from modified cow's milk and is for babies that aren't breastfed to survive until they can get by on regular food. Human children do not need cow's milk, or the milk of other mammals. They are supposed to have human milk. Toddlers only need 2 servings of milk products a day (if any). They usually get that from foods they eat and they don't need to drink cow's milk. It causes constipation, digestive problems, obesity, is bad for the environment, and causes other problems.
