    Default Let's talk poopy...

    First of all I want to say that I miss the newborn diaper. But with that said, I have a couple of questions about solid food dirty diapers. Some things DD eats come out just like it went in. But some things come out as solid as a rock. Is there a norm? Or does it just depend on what food she eats? Poor thing today is so constipated and seems to be passing boulders. What can I do to help her? Now that she is eating solids two times a day, should I be introducing water or any other kind of liquid besides BM?

    What food would you recommend & which ones would you stay clear of?

    Thanks Mommas!!!

    I would say if you see a trend of constipation, more fruits and veggies (esp. try some prunes) and steer clear of too much cereal. You can give water, but it's probably not necessary in addition to the BM this time of year.

    Thanks! All she eats are fruits & veggies. What stops her up are apples, bananas, green beans, peas. But carrots go right through her.

    for constipation use the 3 "p's" prunes, peaches, pears. peaches work wonders on my lo. ds's poo seems to vary depending on what he had to eat, he has a very varied diet and eats pretty much what we eat so it just depends. maybe, you can just think of it as a little surprise for mommy everytime you open a diaper!

    You could give her a tummy massage to help things along.
