    Default Baby poop smells like vinegar??

    Anyone know what could cause a baby's poo to smell like vinegar? He's 7 mos old, not eating solids, and I've been trying to eliminate dairy (pretty successfully) for a few days now. I don't think I've eaten anything new, other than Oreos... ???

    if you are eliminating dairy, the oreos are possibly a "no no". some have milk and such in them

    I don't know, but I would guess that it could be from an acidic system. From the little I know, it is actually acidic foods that cause the body to alkalinize. I think dark leafy greens in particular. Maybe you could try eating them for a few days and see if you notice a change?

    My personal experience was that the vinegar scent was attached to an allergic reaction.

    Which could be connected to the oreo's since some areas have ones that have dairy in them - whereas other areas have oreo's without dairy.

    Did you ever figure out why this happened?

    I have a 10 month old baby that is having the same problem, though she is eating solids. Is it possible she is having an allergic reaction to something she is eating? She went from having ton of hard pooping problems to suddenly lose vinegar-sour milk smelling poop.
