14 month old child, stopped breastfeeding, taking whole milk, light brown sticky stools. Treatment?

I just transitioned my 14 month old off breastmilk and totally on whole milk. I slowly weaned her adding whole milk in July and taking nursing away one sitting per week. The whole milk didn t seem to bother her while I was still nursing her. Now that she is off breastmilk, her stool seems to be a light brown and really sticky. could it be the whole milk that is bothering her?

I don't think whole milk is bothering her, just add Solids as well to her diet like meshed fruits, daal, meshed potatoes, etc and her stool should regain normal consistency.
