I have a 15 month old son, he's been transitioning from formula since 11 and a half months old. Now he's just on milk, the red labeled milk. He goes poop maybe a minimum of 2 times a day but the maximum like 8-9 times a day, sometimes even more than that. He never really gets constipated, maybe 1 or 2 times a month. When he poops, it's little balls sometimes a yellowish greenish color sometimes regular color. My question is, could the form of his poop be because of the milk? Should I switch him to a different kind of milk? Any advice and personal experiences any of you mom's have please let me know! Thank you

My son is also 15 months old and he's been on formula since the first day he was born. I changed his formula only once thus far because the formula I used prior made him constipated. The formula he is on now has been a real blessing because he poops once a day which I am happy with.

Change the formula but enquire with family/friends to perhaps suggest because that what I did being a first time mom and see what happens. I remember that when my son was on the first formula I used his poop also came out in little pebbles which was yellow and greenish but after I switched his formula his poop became regular and much smoother.

Good luck and try not to worry too much, babies have strong immune systems.

My daughter just turned 1 and she's been off formula for 3 weeks now and on the red bag milk, she poops so many times because its hard and small turds! My doctor told me it was just your baby's body getting used to different things ! But if you want to you can try other milks to see ! Also drinking lots of water is helpful I found and prune juice to get the poop out and softer :-)
