DS is 11 months old. He's been eating solids since about 8 months old (baby-led weaning style). We never introduced foods individually and just started him on what we eat normally...


He used to poop every other day or so, but suddenly a month ago he pooped about 6 times in one day and started pooping 2 - 3 times a day. There was no significant change in his diet. He had some bright red blood in his stool, but he had also passed a whole broccoli stock. We had him looked at by his ped. and he confirmed that it was probably an anal fissure and the bleeding stopped later that day.


He has always had a bit of pinkness between his bum, no matter what rash-resistant method I've tried. Recently he's started to be a bit more irritated.


When he eats a lot of solids, he has nice, normal formed poops. But lately, his poop has been more on the green side and I think I've seen some mucous in it. Today he pooped twice, and it was a smelly, wet, green mess. His diet hasn't changed a whole lot, except he had a couple days of eating less solids and more breastmilk.


I'm trying to figure out if this is normal!? I hear so many different opinions. Has anyone else experienced this kind of thing? Any ideas? 


Side note: his diet consists of eggs, meat, seasonal fruits & vegetables, butter, coconut oil, yogurt, and various cultured vegetables. He does not eat grains or any type of sweetener. He only drinks water or breastmilk.
