Avery is 7 1/2 months old. We started solids- quite slowly- at a little before 6 months. Originally, we gave her a tbsp of rice cereal per sitting. We did this maybe 3 times over 5-7 days. Then, I bought some veggies. She had green beans, peas, sweet potatoes and squash. She would eat 1/3 to 1/2 of a jar per sitting, again not even once each day.
At this point, I noticed that she would be poopy with every diaper change. BUT, the poop was strange... It was a very small amount, and kind of stuck to her butt cheeks. It was the kind of poop that would roll off the diaper and into the toilet. But never more than one little chunk. It was NOT hard or dry... It was more like, um, clay maybe?!? I tried pears and prunes to see if that would help- it didn't... She was terribly fussy (for her- which doesn't compare to the fussiness of some)!
Anyway, we stopped solids for a week and just nursed. After that week, I gave her some prunes. She had a pretty good sized poop that was more like what I had been used to. And she was much happier. That was last Friday... So, starting Monday, we have done a little bit of solids again. Monday she had green beans. Tuesday she had oatmeal. Yesterday she had peaches. Last night, she had the same small, clay-like poop.
Is this normal?? Come on, poop experts... I need your input!
