Q.

Cow''s milk

My baby is 20 months old and on Parmalat First Growth milk.

Saturday I started him on Clover Full Cream Milk and by monday his stools were looser than usual and on tuesday loose and watery with the result of nappy rash.

How do I go about easing him onto cow''s milk?

It is possible that your little toddler may have a mild form of lactose intolerance.Fortunately he is able to digest the Parmalat First Growth milk without a problem so it would be best to let him continue on this milk until he is 3 years old.
