  • My DD is BF, I just started giving her solids, her diapers have taken a turn for the worse.

  • If you ff, then you might have accidentally mixed a bottle incorrectly and that will result in a bowel change. If it is real solid and he is having trouble passing it, then call the pedi.

  • If he is FF, his BM's will generally be solid. If he is BF'd, they shouldn't be solid.

  • My daughter has this problem every now and then. Try giving baby prunes, or apple juice. It will soften. Sometimes it happens when you switch foods.

  • If she is FF then that's probably why. Formula is hard for their bodies to digest and comes out thicker because their bodies also dont absorb the synthetic nutrients well.

  • Take a biology class PLEASE. The human digestive system works by seperating fluid from solid. In every food, there is a combination of both, even in breastmilk and formula. (you should know this, because to make formula, you have to mix a solid powder with a liquid???) In formula there is a considerable amount of undigestible bulk, which passes through into the feces, less in breastmilk, which is why constipation is common in formula fed babies and nearly unheard of in breastfed babies. In fact, there is very little in breastmilk that isn't digestible, so it's common for breastfed babies to go days without a bowel movement.

    I thought basic biology was an educational requirement in this country.
