by Lorna(England) We introduced cow’ milk to our one year old daughter two weeks ago. She has approx 150ml cow’s milk plus 400ml toddler milk each day. She eats a balanced diet and I have had no problems in the past. Since this change she has had loose (not diarrhea) stools which are yellow (similar to when they are very young) which have a strong bad smell. She also seems very irritable. Any advice please? Baby Help Line: Smelly, Runny Stools And Cow’s Milk Since introducing cow’s milk is the only change you have done to her diet, I would definitely take it out of her diet again and see if there is an improvement.
It is very possible that her loose stools, irritability and the smell and color of her stools are all related to either lactose intolerance or milk protein allergy. The color of her stools is not necessarily an issue. Even if it is related to the cow’s milk, the color alone is probably nothing to worry about. Unless you notice other signs of illness (such as a fever or vomiting), take her off dairy products – either all dairy or start with experimenting with lactose free products.
At the same time, schedule an appointment with her health care provider to discuss if you should test her for lactose intolerance or milk allergy or if you should simply introduce the milk more slowly. I’ll include a few links about babies with similar issues below. Good luck!Paula Babies With Cow’s Milk Issues Find comments to this question below.See Also: Meat Cow Diagram

Recently we switched our 1 year old who was solely breastfed to whole milk. Near her first birthday I would mix whole milk into her breastmilk increasing whole milk and decreasing breastmilk every day until it was totally whole milk. Since we have switched her poops have not been solid. They are not runny or diarrhea but they are not solid like they used to be. Her poop is a really weird green sometimes yellowish color also.
She also is getting diaper rash on her butt and vagina easily and she has never had diaper rash in her first year at all. She seems very uncomfortable when she is pooping and being changed and sometimes cries really hard. I called the telenurse and she said that it could be that she is lactose intolerant but it is doubtful since she is only 1 year old. She suggested to give her smaller amounts of milk to try to transition a little better or even switch to lactose free and see if that helps.
Has anyone had any experience like this after switching to whole milk?
