    My daughter has been eating solids for about a month. We started her with oatmeal cereal and recently introduced avocado. Her poop has significantly changed. Instead of the bf color, she now has dark green poop. The smell is horrible and it’s a little runny. Definitely saw chunks in the poop as well. My only concern is the watery part. Mt husband makes fun of me for how closely I examine her poop. I got him back though because I caught him doing it too.

    My wife is concerned our 7mo old daughter isn’t ready for Gerber 2nd Foods because her poop is significantly thicker. She’s a breast fed baby, she started 1st foods about 5 1/2mo old now she just turned 7 mo old. Am I wrong? I thought it was normal or is my wife right she’s not ready? She esta all 4oz of the 2nd foods in one sitting.

    My baby girl is 9 months old. From last few days she frequently poop in a day after her every meal. It’s not too soft but looks like she could not digest her food. But before that she had constipation problem. Her Dr told me to give her family food and I am following that suggestion. Her weight is almost 18 pounds. Is it normal? Which food can help her to improve her bowel movement? Thanks.

      Same thing is happening with my 8 month baby, as I have also started giving her semi solid food from 7 the month… I think her digestive system will take some time to mature…

    My lo is almost 7 months, started solids at 6mth 1week. Every time he has banana he has very liquid poo, otherwise seems fine and not unwell. While exclusively breastfed he was pooping every 1 to 2 weeks!! Now about once or twice a week. He only has one liquid poop the day of eating banana and the rest of the time. It is smooth and pasty. I am starting to think he might be intolerant of banana, it is high in amines, check out for information about food intolerance in infants and breastfed babies

    My baby is 21 weeks old, and had been showing interest in our food during mealtimes… I smashed up a little banana mixed with breast milk & he ate probably just 3 tsp. total. That was 48 hours ago and since then he’s had 3 small stools that are liquidy. He has normal wet diapers, and he acts completely fine. 1st question: was I wrong to feed him a little banana just to see how he does? I called my doc & told her nurses & they told me I shouldn’t have done that til 6 months… He showed all signs of wanting to try solids. Shouldn’t we go with what out baby wants rather than what is “standard”? 2nd question: should I be concerned that he’s still having liquid stools after it’s been almost 2 days since he ate the banana? Thank you.

      I’d take him to the doctor just to be on the safe side

    Hi my little one just turned 5 months on 27th of august and we started him on Semi solids (Baby Cereal- oatmeal banana)once a day when he was 4 months and 2 weeks on the advice of his doctor as he was showing interest. Ever since we started him on that his poop is dark green and the texture is like peanut butter. Also he poops every second day.Is that normal?

  7. Alyson says

    My LO is 6 1/2 months old and his poops are getting more formed and smelly. He’s exclusively breastfed and currently teething. Is this normal or is someone sneaking him some solids?

    • Kelly Stellato says

      Hello Alyson, we can’t say for sure of course, but this change in poop pattern is common when babies do start solids. I am not saying that anyone is sneaking your LO food, her digestive system may just be holding the milk longer and therefore it forms. You can let us know if you find out if your LO is getting some carrots behind your back! 🙂

      • Alyson says

        Thank you for the response. I had him to myself for several days (so I made sure he wasn’t receiving any solids) and his poop stayed the new peanut buttery texture/smelliness so I guess it just did change with age, which I wasn’t expecting. His digestive system has slowed down a lot over the past month so I’m guessing that that was the cause. I was glad to realize that no one was sneaking him anything since his father and I wanted to be the first ones to introduce him to solids. 🙂

    My little one poop twice a day. He is exclusively breastfeed . I gave him sweet potato with breastmilk once a day when he is five month. Still he poops only twice a week. Is that normal?.

    • EmilyDeJeu says

      @ Deepa – This sounds normal to me, although if you are concerned, you should certainly speak to a healthcare provider. He/she will be the best judge of your baby’s overall health. Thanks for commenting!

    My lo is 6 month old and he has been recently introduced to semi solids since a fortnight.For the past week he has been pooping during every feed. And that is greenish yellow in colour. Watery a couple of times on the whole. And mainpoint..the quantity. Its not much. He pushes hard.. And poops not more than a spoonful. Am really confused!!

    • EmilyDeJeu says

      @ Ash – very normal, I’d say, although if you’re at all concerned, you should check with a healthcare provider. Thanks for commenting!

    • Kelly says

      Hi Ash/Emily, my Lo has the exact same thing you wrote! I know your post was from a few weeks ago, but how long did it take before your Lo went back to normal and the frequency changed back to normal? Please help.
