Ok, for the last month or so I've been giving Kaylee whole milk trying to get her ready to go off the formula by her first birthday. She has a can & a half of formula left so I'm planning on once that's gone, it's gone for good. She does real good with milk, she drinks it right down as long as I warm it up for about 20 seconds. The only thing I've noticed when she drinks quite a bit of it is that she gets constipated. Is it normal for milk to do this & what can I give her for it if she refuses any juices? She used to drink apple juice & that would do the trick but she won't drink any juices now, just ice water, formula & milk..

I put cornsyrup in the bottle just enough so thats theres a think layer covering the entire bottom of the bottle. And I try to get him to eat some prunes atleast once a week. And hes only been constipated once in the month hes been drinking whole milk.

isn't your baby only like 4 months old? i'm confused as to why he'd be drinking whole milk...

michelle, i'd try prunes before anything else. i don't think babies need corn syrup.
