Is Foremilk The Cause For Soft Stool?

Mentioned in my earlier post that I had plenty of fore milk, so instead of wasting it, I heed some advice to collect them for Nicholas.


This is the amount of fore milk or so-called the "let down" milk from the other breast when I nursing Baby Ryan over 3 feeds. Each feed I'm able to collect about 30ml and this bottle of fore milk was mixed into Nicholas' usual milk.



However, after 2 days of such concoction, Nicholas' stool turned soft and kept going to the toilet at the end of 2nd day. I have no idea was the fore milk the cause or simply because he ate too much fruits and yogurt on that particular day. He even vomited one chunk of watermelon which he ate after dinner.


He recovered the next day but I just wonder should I continue giving him this concoction. Any advice?

wow! 30ml, dat is really a lot of foremilk. logically the foremilk might caused loose stool coz our baby still poops water stool.

Does Nicholas drinks the foremilk just as it is or do you put in some other milk?

As long as he is eating well otherwise,I think the loose stool is ok. No real cause for worry.

Maybe you can consult a lactation specialist?
