My ds is totally into solid foods. One day he just started grabbing food out of our plates, hands and will try to get it out of our mouths! He is 8 months now so I figure he is okay to have solids. I've been giving him steamed baby carrots and apple slices so he can hold them and eat them. He LOVES it! The only problem now is that he is having difficulty pooping. He does poop but he cries when he passes them. They are not hard or dry. The poop is soft and mushy but with chunks of food in them. He is not pooping every day either now. He used to do two BMs a day with breastmilk but now he is going every other day. Its so hard to see him cry when passing BMs. Any suggestions people?
