Q.

Cows Milk

Hi there,

I have started giving my 23 month old, cows milk. He was on Nido. He seems to enjoy it. The only change I see is in his dirty nappies. They are now a greenish/grey colour and are quite soft.

Is this alright or have I done the switch too early?

Thank you for your time.

You could have done the change over much earlier. His stools are an unusual colour and this is probably not due to the milk.Is he on an iron tonic or on a vitamin supplement with iron? Use full cream cow's milk
