  • Your baby's poop depends on what he is eating. Once you start feeding him solid food it will start to change, but depending on how much he decides to eat, it might not be like grown-up poop until 15 months. The 9-15 month period is really transitional for poop. Sometimes it can be like baby poop and sometimes it can be like grow-up poop depending on how much your child decides to eat. If you are breastfeeding enjoy it because once you start giving formula or other foods the poop will start to smell bad.

  • If you are breastfeeding the bowel movements will continue to be runny and sticky (yellow and seedish) but doesnt have much smell to it. If your formula feeding it gets more solid and has strong odors to it. Just really depends on the diet of the child. Hope this Helps.

  • If your breastfeeding they will stay that way until you start introducing solids. This is because breastmilk is the ideal food for a human child. The is very little filler if any at all, so the child is able to use everything for personal growth and development. All poop is, is waste that the body was unable to use so there is absolutly no reason to worry. Just make sure that he/she is peeing no less then 6 times within 24 hours.

  • Once solids are introduced, the poop will become thicker and stickier.

    We use cloth diapers, and things were definitely much nicer when he was exclusively breastfed.

    If you are breastfeeding, there is definitely no need to rush on the solids.
