...across the room. My goodness, these solid-food poops are spectacular, aren't they? I fed him some Fig Newmans. Wow. There's a green cloud around him, I swear.<br>
I guess I need to go get his night-time diaper ready (for the curious, that would be a Growing Greens+contour+fleece-top doubler, with a microfiber washcloth folded up under the contour, under a Prorap). Those have turned into my Nighttime Plan, since they're sort of bulky and I only have five of them, and he sleeps with his butt in the air anyway. He's grown out of his FB, so now he's a Wonderoos baby. I love Wonderoos - they never seem to leak a poop. Good thing, too, from the smell of things.<br>
*sigh* I'm off to change bowel boy... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Oh yeah, I can't wait to start solids. It's even worse with sposies-I changed my friends 18 month old dd the other day and gagged the whole time.

Awww, here's a virtual clothespin for your nose. ><br><br>
So, since we;re on the subject of poo and no one IRL wants to talk about it... my DD is a solid hound these days (sooo different than her brother ever was!) and her poo is hard litlte logs! is she dehydrated or is this how solid eating babes poo looks? I never had a baby with non-explosive pudding poo. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> Shoudl I be concerned?

I don't think you want hard little logs...have you tried her on water in a regular cup? I usually do that with my son at mealtimes in his highchair...they're supposed to get most of their nutrition from milk or formula anyway, but it's never done any damage to my son's appetite to get some water, and it'll counteract any...erm...solidifying effect of whatever he's eating. He isn't a big solid-eater, but he's never had a "log" poop. Firm, but not loglike.<br>
On the subject of 'sposie stink, my six-month-old nephew was visiting for Thanksgiving, and I could smell his pee from about five feet away. I am so not used to that - ick!

Claire, I wouldn't be too concerned unless your DD acts like she's having trouble passing it or is in pain. But I do find that sometimes it's a bit of a balancing act around here. If things need softened up, I give DD some prunes or sweet potatoes, but if things need firmed up, I give her apples, bananas, or rice cereal. It's a delicate science, I tell ya'. :LOL

Claire I wouldn't worry about her unless she looks like she's having a hard go of it. My little dd is the same way...if it's solid, looks like food she'll eat it. Makes for some interesting changes. Also makes for a lot of this face --> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
I swear that's what she looks like :LOL

Thanks you both for the poo science lesson! I'll do some more water and some prunes or sweet potatoes! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> thanks.<br><br>
And, sorry to you Jennifer for hijacking your thread. I thought since we were on the subject...

and if you are brave, raisins work well on the little pellets <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> It is just horrible to fish then out of the washer if you don't dunk/spray/shake.<br><br>
Julia eats tons of solids, but generally I am able to keep hers to a soft consistency. Soy cheese is what works here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> she loves pasta and any kind of cheese, so I gotta keep on top of things with they soy and raisins. And yes, fig newmans are dangerous.
