I have started my 6 month old on some solids- since about 2 wks ago. He mostly only still has breast milk. but he has had some fruits (pureed), some squash, and a little bit of thin pureed oats. since starting this stuff he has had a lot less frequent poops. One time he went for 4 days with no poops! that night I said- if he doesn't poop tonight I am calling the doctor for advice tomorrow- but he pooped twice that night.
then he pooped two days in a row, and now he has not pooped yesterday or today. I feed him the solids only in small amounts, and not every day. He doesn't seem uncomfortable and none of his other things have changed. But I worry that he needs to poop! I try to give him water also- both in a spoon and in a bottle, and he takes a little. But he still primarily is nursing.
Is there anything to do for this, is this okay, and is it just the body's way of adjusting to solids?
