Update: We're getting used to a new normal. Amanda's bowels have settled some but things have changed. She's having BM's more frequently and always in the morning before she lets me know she's awake. That's been happening for months and I have no idea how to resolve that pattern. I've tried waking her up as soon as I'm awake (between 4:30 am and 5 am) which helps but if I wake up much later than that I have a dirty bum to clean up. Since Amanda isn't used to laying down to have her diaper changed, this means using a squirt bottle and toilet paper while I hold her over the toilet. Amanda is a happy as ever and it's great that she's having more healthy stools compared to the hard, constipating formula stools.
We're beginning the process of transitioning from formula to whole milk. We thought we'd start with goat's milk because that's easier to digest. Amanda will drink the milk mixed with formula or breastmilk in the nurser, but she's been having runny stools. So, needless to say, she'll be in diapers until her tummy settles down. Hopefully, that is soon. We're only mixing a little bit in at a time. Any other tips or experiences?
