Soo this is really strange and I had a talk with Beechnut earlier (about this matter) and they are sending me coupons! Who said I wanted coupons! I want an explanation! I was 'assured' that there was no pot in the baby food :/ Ohhh and I was told that I was the first person to report this! Are you serious!? :

It seems like everytime Natalie eats the Beechnut Guava her bowel movements smell like . . well. . . pot. I'm serious! At first I was not to concerned because it didnt hit me right then and there. . . but when Alfredo was changing her two days ago I came in the room and it smelled like none other than POT!

Ugghhh this is what I get for being lazy and not making my own baby food!

My ds' poop smells like buttered popcorn. Should I call Orville Redenbacher?

And how do you know what pot smells like? (I've never smelled or smoked it.)

Babys got da funk! :

I sort of liked the smell of my babies' breastmilk poop.

I decidedly don't like the smell when my LO eats blueberries.

I once provided childcare for a child who started life on raw cow's milk and wheat flour (adopted from another country)--his gut flora was so out of whack that I kept his diaper pail on the porch.

But pot? I'm a mom who's been around the block, and pot is a new one to me!

I don't know. There could be something to this. She's obviously pretty worried about it. I would be, too, if my little guy's poop started smelling like a drug. I would stop giving her the food that's causing it and see if it goes away. And I would also try to make my own baby food, if that's feasable for you.

As to how she knows what it smells like, maybe she had friends who did it. I had friends who smoked pot and they were always sticking it in my face to smell it because that's how you can tell the quality. It all smelled gross to me, but they would rave about how good it smelled and everything. To each his own, I guess.

I can't believe someone is getting grief on MDC of all places for knowing what pot smells like.

If you really want to know, take some old hemp rope and burn it.

I feed my baby Beechnut and he's never had anything but normal healthy bowel movements, in smell and consistency....

I have, however, noticed that the different food produce different smells, but I don't think there's anything to worry about! I highly doubt they put pot in their baby food! And think about it this way.... if they do, you'll have a very calm baby with a fantastic appetite!

Spoony Poop! Ewwwwww....that is about the nastiest phrase I have ever thought about. Hilarious, but nasty.
Frankly, I wouldn't worry about the pot smell. A little weird to be sure, but probably nothing to it. I mean, when I eat spaghetti, it doesn't come out smelling the same way it went in!

I was asking a genuine question, actually. I am not, have never been, and don't plan to be a pot smoker. I've never been exposed to it, either.

The Orville Redenbacher comment was definitely snark.

I don't have any and wouldn't know where to get it. I have no need for rope.

Well shoot, I'm out of ideas then. I'd suggest some hemp clothing or something but that would be spendy.

My babe's smell varies greatly depending on what he eats. I can't stand the smell after he eats prunes. It doesn't smell like prunes, just something very different.

Well, yeah... if I buy some hemp clothing I'm sure not burning it.

You can get hemp rope at any craft store, kids (and others) use it to make macrame.

As for poop smelling like pot, I'm pretty sure that my poop didn't smell like pot when I used to smoke it. Anyone ever have pot brownies? Did your poop smell like pot?

I've had a lot of things smell like pot. Maybe it was my wishful thinking, but I'd catch a whiff now and then and sigh.

I remember when I was 12 I was at a concert with my mom and I smelled pot. I go "Do you smell pot?" She says "How do you know what pot smells like?" I say "Andy (my old babysitter) used to smoke it all the time!... you didn't know that?" Mom says "No, I DIDN'T know that, and if I had, he wouldn't have been babysitting you guys! (Awkward silence) and you shouldn't smoke pot. I did it like six times, and all it did was make me sick."

You know, I thought my mom was dumb for a pretty long time after that... I see trying pot once or twice and getting sick, but six times and getting sick every time? lol!



Oh, and since we're all s here, and want to know what pot smells like, we can burn hemp bras!

Then we ALL win!

Fresh guavas have an odd odor and lots of enzymes in them- I would guess that would account for the smell

I'm chiming in late here but...

I cannot tell the difference between the smell of fresh strawberries and my babes bf poo.

I walked in to a speaking engagement and almost started with "Whose baby just had the blowout? and then I spied the astrawberries in teh back of the room. FWIW, it was bf related talk.

You don’t owe them an explanation, just a response.

my kid's poop used to smell like morningstar farms veggie sausage. It was disturbing, as he'd poop in bed between us, and I'd wake up hungry. Then I'd realize why.
