    Default poop consistency?

    I have noticed my LO's poops (the last 2 anyway) have been more "dry". I am not really sure if that's the best way to describe it, but its just that the consistency has changed. they were always more on the running side, but not bad runny. The closest thing I could describe it would be the consistency of mashed potatoes. They have also had a much stronger odor than before. The color hasn't really changed though and everything else seems to be fine. Any ideas? Is this a bad thing or just something that happens.

    I'm pretty sure this is normal. My lo's have recently changed to the consistancy you just described. I'm curious to see what the other moms around here say.
