Sorry for the TMI post, but I'm curious. Dd is eating solids, sometimes, and nursing a lot. Her poop is still so runny. I'm so sick of washing out icky poop diapers, and long for the days I can just plop it in the toilet!

My 9 month old has either runny bf poop or more peanut buttery poop depending on how much she has been eating...I too am wondering when I need to start depositing some in the toilet - do you wait for horseballs that you can just shake off?

Wow being a mom is fun.

It's about the consistency of peanut butter with lots of food chunks in it. Takes some scraping into the toilet before it goes in the wetbag. I try to remember to use the flushable liners, but it rarely happens.

Thick split-pea soup consistency, and sticky, too. He eats a small amt of solids but mainly still breastfeeds.

My LO loves eating and eats quite a bit. I make sure to offer lots of water and an occasional prunes breakfast to ease things along. Mostly his poop is thick split-pea soup too, but has been increasingly well-formed and soft these days - I can just shake it into the toilet from the diaper.

When did they get thick(er)? Have they always been that way? All of a sudden, at about 6.5 months Carter's poop got thicker (it had always been very runny). I have frequently wondered why, but when I asked the pediatrician, she thought it could be dehydration. It's not, he has plenty of wet diapers.

My son has always tended toward constipation, so his are hard and I just shake them into the toilet. They were mostly solid while he was still EB from about 5 months on. Now he eats food and they are still solid.

DD's goes from pretty solid, but not hard (not constipated). Easy to clean, not stinky. To sometimes peanut buttery, but still easy to clean. They haven't been very stinky since we first started solids at a little over 7 months. She only eats a few foods, though, and generally eats 2-3 times a day.

LOTS of milk, though, she's still nursing frequently.

They started to get thicker when we started solids around 6-7 mths. And only a small amounts of solids did it b/c to this day he gets pretty much all of his nutrition from breastmilk (he's still more into playing and experimenting with food rather than swallowing it down). They have not always been this way. When he started drooling a lot around 2-4 months, they turned into more of a liquidy, peanut-buttery type "drool stool." Back then he had at least 1-2 bm/day. Now he goes only about 1x/week.

So do you all scrape the pb consistency poo into the toilet or just toss dipes in the wash as they are?

Another "yeah that" to the thick split pea soup description. And it's still bright yellow. But my DS (11 months) isn't eating any solids yet.
