You can see all the pieces of completly undigested food in there too.<br><br>
Is this normal, it doesnt seem so...? When do they start digesting their food?

My son didn't start digesting well until he was 19 months old and my milk came back. At 15 months, I was pregnant and my milk had just about gone, and I could see *everything* he ate, it just came right back out again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
If your daughter is not digesting the food, and you're still making plenty of milk (you're not pregnant) then my advice is to give her more nursies until her body is mature enough for regular food, and give her foods which are easier to digest (the kinds of things you'd give a younger child). I'm convinced that it's perfectly normal for a child not to be able to digest foods really well until they're 18 months old or even later, though.

..Yup same same thing here. My 15 month old is almost exclusivelt bf except for an occasional slice of toast or some plain noodles & I always see chunks of *something <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">: in her poop. I think also b/c the can't really chew & grind up their food we'll see more pieces than we're used to.
