My DS has only been able to tolerate Nestle Good Start. Everything else makes his poo hard, and makes him super gassy. He'll be one in a few weeks, so I tried mixing 2oz of whole milk with 4oz of formula last week to see how he would handle it. Everything was fine at first, but within a few days, his poo was hard again. So now I'm wondering if we're going to have to go to NGS2 instead of whole milk. We'll try whole milk again after he turns 1, but I'm just wondering if there are any other babies that could only tolerate NGS, and what the experience was like when switching to milk.

It could be that Goodstart has the broken down cows milk proteins to make it easier to digest. Try rice or almond milk, it won't have the milk proteins in it so it may help with the hard stools and just as good for you as cows milk. Or even goats milk is easier to tolerate. You could also try soy milk but I've heard it causes poop issues as well. Hope you can find something to help! Just make sure they are calcium fortified or use a calcium supplement.

Thanks for the suggestions I've seen almond and rice milk, I'll have to look and see if goat's milk is available around here. After I posted I did some googling, and I'm wondering if he might have an intolerance to the milk protein. I'm going to bring it up with his pedi at his one year appointment.
