I'm wondering if this is normal...
My baby is just shy of 6 months old (considering his due date, he is). He sits up unassisted, picks things up, sometimes passes from hand to hand, turns the pages in his board book (inexpertly).
I started introducing solids - mostly so he can get the flavor of things, not as a real substitute for food. I made steamed carrots two nights ago - steamed til they were very soft, then mushed through a tight wire strainer to make very small pieces. He ate it well (leaning forward, grabbing the spoon, eagerly)... I'd say he had about... less than a teaspoon of the carrot mixed with gerber rice and breast milk. All in all about one table spoon.
But the carrots came out in his poop the same way they went in. It looked like they hadn't been digested at all. Is that usual with carrots?
Also the second night after I feeding him, he threw up (I'd say about 1/2 of what he'd eaten).
Is this normal when you're introducing solids?
