    Default Curdless poop ok?

    So my 3 month old LO has brown/yellow runny poop nowadays since he's stopped having them everyday, but they no longer have the cottage cheesey curds now. Is this a normal poop? According to this, there should be curds every time?? I've not seen curds in his poop for some time now.

    I posted several times about his new eating habits and how short our feedings are. I'm hoping the 2 aren't related.

    Does it say they need to be "every time" there? I couldn't find it.

    Our LO didn't have curds every single time. Sometimes they were just nice and yellowish. We never thought anything of it. he has never had any problems.

    I wouldn't worry about it. I believe eventually their bodies start digesting the fats better and it eliminates the curds. Sometimes my LO has them, sometimes not!

    DD's poop has been pretty much curd-free for a few weeks. I'm pretty sure it's normal.

    DS only had curds for the first few months; I wouldn't worry.

    At times when my little girl doesn't have bm for longer periods (3-4 days), the output is usually curdless. I've always assumed that the curdles were undigested bits of milk... I just think your LO is absorbing all that good stuff from your milk.

    WOW!! PP is spot on! When he missed a few days, they were curdless. He had poops 3 days in a row now and they all had curds.

    Thanks everyone for your input!!
