Sorry this is a bit of a TMI post but. I'm almost 4 months along and I know DD is not getting alot of breastmilk anymore. She is 2years BTW. But her poops are not solid just wondering if thats normal. She has pooped 3 times today and she usaully is a every other day kinda girl. Any info on this would be helpful.

Is your colostrum coming in, maybe? That's what it makes me think. Breastmilk makes a lot of changes, especially during pregnancy. No worries though

Has she been drinking more of other things like juice?? I accidentally gave 12mo ds undiluted white grape juice and his poops were waaay softer and more frequent for a day or two after.

when I nursed my son during pregnancy with my second son, he got a BAD case of colostrum diarrhea from about 30 weeks onwards. It was yucky but not harmful.

It may be that you are producing colostrum now and that is setting her off.

Or alternatively, do you know whether you still have milk? Mine dried up at 24 weeks or so but most moms I have talked to have lost their milk entirely by 16 - 18 wks. It could be that she is still nursing but without your milk so something else might be upsetting her tummy without your antibodies to keep things calm.

Just some thoughts.


You know the attributes for a great adult? Initiative, creativity, intellectual curiosity? They make for a helluva kid...

My milk switched over to colostrum around 24 weeks and DS' poop became a lot softer and messier.
