Should I be worried?
October 9, 2012 at 1:33 PM
My son just turned 9 weeks old and he has never had a solid bm. It's like soft serve ice cream to liquid. :( He just got the rotavirus vaccine so the pedi said that might help, but I don't know. He's half and half fomula and breast feeding, could that be what's causing this? Any tips on getting more solid poops would be appreciated. Oh! He usually has a bm every 2 to 3 days if that helps any. TYIA!!

    I don't think it's anything to worry about. I think as solid food become a bigger part of their diet, their poops change.

    I read that as 9 months. You really don't have to worry. His poop is liquid because all he eats is liquid. It won't start to change until after he starts solids.

    Why do you want them to be more solid? Breastmilk is a natural laxative. Most breastfed babies have pretty much liquid poop until solids are introduced. Formula babies tend to have more solid poops because formula is hard to digest and usually causes constipation.
    I see no reason to worry.

    Liquid diet = liquid poop. Why would you want them solid? My kids never had solid poop before staying solid foods.

    Thank you, ladies! I didn't want them solid, I just thought that they were supposed to be. I adopted my ss when he was 1 so never did the baby thing. I am completely out of my element with this lil guy. lol

    Most babies don't start having solids poops until they start solid foods.
