    Megan has been on the comfort milk since she was 6 weeks old. Still only had a poo every 4 days or so....

    She is now just over 6 months old and eating some solids so her bowel movements are now more consistant.

    In the last month or so she has reduced her milk intake down to 4/5oz bottles 4 x a day.

    Should i switch her to aptamil first?? or Aptamil follow on? Whats the difference???

    Do i gradually introduce the new milk, one bottle per day and then increase it??

    I have no idea what i am doing!!!

    Thanks

    xx

    when we came off comfort with my eldest we just switched straight over and had no problems. But i did read somewhere you should do it slowly. So i guess that one is up to you. There is no real difference between 1st milk and follow on milk. Except that there are normally offers on follow on milk. I was told by my hv that there was no need to change so we didnt (we came off comfort at 4 months and went to hungry baby) So at 6 months we just stayed on hungry baby. In your case i would probably go onto follow on milk. As your coming off comfort then it wont make a difference to you x
