When You Start Solids, Those Other Solids Get a Lot More Interesting
Everybody poops, and your baby’s just got a lot more interesting.
Here's What You Need To Know:
- Baby’s stool changes when you introduce solids to their diet. It can smell different, be a different consistency, and a different color.
- Food can change the appearance of your baby’s poop. Green vegetables may turn their stool green while beets may turn it a red hue.
- It is normal for undigested bits of food to appear.
- Increase the amount of water in their purees or giving them a little water (2-4oz) if they get constipated.
As you introduce solid foods to your baby, you will notice their stools change. They will become more solid, change in color, and have a much stronger odor. Green vegetables like spinach or peas may turn their stool green while beets may turn it a red hue. Undigested bits of food may also be present, like the casing of peas or seeds in raspberries. All this is very normal. __Below are a few things to consider as your little one enters a whole new doo-doo stage. __
