    Default Where's the poop?

    Situation: DS almost 6 months old poops very regularly, usually a blowout in the AM. Yesterday morning he had his blowout, but not one today...yet. He has had a couple of "sharts" today. He seems fine, I pressed on his belly and he did not squirm or flinch, and he is eating and acting normally for him. He is having his normal output of wet diapers.

    He is teething, and beginning to crawl. The past 2 days he has had a couple of baby tastes of avocado (no more than a teaspoon at one time). We also must factor in the 6 mo. growth spurt...Could the combination of these be related to the absence of poop...who would have thought I would miss it!

    Sounds like normal bm baby stuff to me. Will goes for up to 5-6 days and he's on solids now too.

    sounds normal to me as well. Actually my son usually goes poo every couple of days and he is 6 months as well so maybe things are starting to slow down??

    Babies are such gross little trouble makers, aren't they? It sounds like normal stuff, though. My little guy is 6 mos too, and that seems to be a particulaly strange time. They're learning more, getting more active, teething... I wouldn't worry, they're whole goal in life is to make us worry, I think, and yours sounds good at it.
