cow's milk and effects on the body (nappies!!)

Hello fellow mums,
advice needed please... alert, TMI... poo talk!!
Charlie is now a year old and I have moved him onto cows milk and no more formula. He's loving it and has about 16/18 oz a day. That's a cup in the morning, some with breakfast and a bottle at night. Thing is he is now doing at least 4 horrible, nasty dirty nappies a day and his bottom is getting very sore. It's not diarrhoea, but very wet and sticky and flippin' loads of it!!! The biggest problem is that he is going in the middle of the night and by morning it is everywhere!! Sorry if you've just had your dinner!!

Has anyone else had this problem after moving their LOs onto cows milk? Is it the milk or could it be something else?? He eats a lot of fruit and veg and not sure if that is contributing to this almighty mess as well. I'm not really sure and my health visitors are useless at times, so I'd rather ask you lot.

Thanks, fingers crossed I don't have to wash anymore sheets, sleeping bags, cot bumpers, vests, pj's teddies tomorrow morning!!!!!!!!!!!

Ooh, that sounds nasty, Danielle. :scared:

I can't speak from personal experience but a friend of mine was saying only yesterday that since she moved her little girl over from formula to cows' milk she hasn't needed to give her (the little girl!) any lactulose. She thought it might be because formula is fortified with iron, which bungs you up. So, if Charlie didn't used to get bunged up on formula perhaps the reduction in iron has caused the problem?

(That's not to imply that the reduction in iron is a bad thing, as at this age of course it's hardly necessary as long as he's having a varied diet which I know he is!).

Hi Jessica,

It's not nice but I'm more worried about his poor little insides!! I didn't know such a small person could produce such a huge load of ... you know what!! Sounds like it's the milk then if your friend has experienced similar with her little one. I was also concerned about iron and chose not to put him on follow on milk as it's very sweet apparently and then they don't like cows milk. He does get a good balanced diet so I guess he's ok. Just very very regular!

Thanks Gemma. I asked the HV yesterday and she said go and see the Dr. How helpful? My mum told me I had an intolerance to cows milk and had goats milk at a year. HV's eyes nearly popped out of her head, goats milk is a big NO NO and can be harmful to young children. 'Luckily I'm alright, but my mother obviously went against medication recommendations' according to the HV.

Hi Jen!! How are you and L doing? Yes a year certainly flies by! C is getting better actually and he's not as sore, I think he's either getting used to the milk or something else upset him I will talk to the Dr if it continues.
Lovely to hear from you xxx
