    Apple juice contains a natural sugar, sorbital, which can cause or aggravate diarrhea. Green watery poops could be a sign of food intolerance. It's best to wait until nine months to introduce juice.

    It could be a bug, it could be something else (like the above posters mentioned) but either how, the best thing for baby is to keep nursing !

    Is the poop smelly?

    Here's some specific info on what is diarrhea in a bfed baby:
    http://www.drjaygordon.com/developme...ricks/poop.asp

    I would suggest leaving the juice off (makes diarrhea worse), and possibly even dropping the cereal for a few days so that your baby's digestive system can begin to heal (assuming it's not a major part of baby's diet, of course). Breastmilk contains enzymes and friendly bacteria that help regulate the digestive system.

    I hope your LO feels better soon!

I offer breast and she is not interested, offer spoon and she is leaning into it . so i cant imagine taking it away totally she stares at us when we eat every meal and i mean eyes never leave the utensil your using... I am just really glad she has quit pooping so much cuz dang and again thanks for all the thoughts and help.
