My 13 month old poops about 5-6 times a day but its only a few little hard balls at a time. They are light green and really stink. I didn't think there was anything to worry about, I thought his stomach was getting use to the whole milk I just started giving him at 12 months, but now at 13 months nothing has changed. He isnt showing any signs of being in pain at all. Should I be worring? should I give him some prune juice and see what happens? please help!

He may need more fluid in his diet, my daughter does the same thing and she's been on whole milk for 8 months now. I give mine juices and the poops softened a little and shes never in any pain when she poops either.
