    Default how runny are poops typically?

    My LO's poops are always quite runny. I've always thought that this is normal? I am a vegetarian and my diet is rich in fiber, I just assumed that was part of it?

    breastfed babies generally have very runny poop. Totally normal. My LO shot poo across the room while I was changing him (back when he was around 1-2 weeks old) and frighetned all of us, lol....my older son couldn't stop laughing and said that it looked like he peed from his bum

    totally normal to be runny, they get a little pastier when trying solids. Watch out if they sneeze while you're changing them- my lo got my mil that way
