change in bowel movement???
My baby is 7 month old now and I have been offering solids twice a day (for almost a month now). Somedays I give her oat cereal both in the morning and night and somedays oat cereal in the morning and carrots/sweet potatoes at night. She does not take a whole lot - 1 spoon cereal and 1/3rd cup of Carrot/sweet potatoes.
When she was on just BM, her bowel movements were regular - like once / twice everyday.
Since when I started solids, her bowel movements completely changed. Sometimes it takes 3 days and sometimes it takes 5 days for her to poop.
When she poops after so many days, she poops like 2 or 3 times that day and she poops so much. It appears pasty and not watery.
-Is this normal?
-Will her bowel movements come back to normal or will it remain the same? -Can I do something to change this irregular pattern?
Your response would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance,

Sounds normal. Solids generally thicken up the stools like adult stools are. As long as she has no problems getting it out, I wouldn't worry.
