Hi, my baby is 10 months old. From last five days I m introducing him cow's milk. I m diluting the milk 1: 1. 5 ratio. night time I m giving him formula milk( Nan pro 2). He is passing stool very hard. Is it because of cow milk. cow milk can cause conspitation in babies. please suggest any remedies to pass stool normally.

Cow's milk per se may ot give constipation but it is not recommended for babies below one year of age. To avoid constipation both fluid and fiber intake has to be increased. For that Give more water. If the child doesn’t take plain water include fluids like coconut water, , juices, soups etc. Give dals with husk in khichri form or add whole dals/beans/legumes to the soups. Give porridge of dalia, oats, ragi, rice flakes. Alternatively these whole cereals can be used for khichri, uttapam, upma or idlis too. Give plenty of fruits & vegetables. Hard fruits like apple, pear can be given as stew. Fruits like banana, papaya, cheeku be given as it is or in a mashed form. Avoid giving refined cereals/ maida products.
