Re: New mom, Starting solids, right and wrong?
Those charts are put out by companies whose goal is to sell you as much product as possible.

Poop consistency (and color, and odor) will vary a lot based on how much solid food your baby is eating. Don't expect to see "formed" poops until the baby is eating a lot of solids. Once baby is eating a lot of solids, you should start looking for a more regular stooping pattern. If a baby who is eating lots of solids is often going several days between poops, seems uncomfortable when pooping, or produces stool that is hard, dry, or pellet-like, talk to your doc.
