14 months old and poop changed dramatically.

My baby girl is 14 months old and since birth she has had very wet poops, always messy. The past week or so her poop has changed to solid little balls. She does not seem to be in pain, clean up is easier, but it is way more stinky!! Is a change in poop like this normal or a red flag?

  • Is she drinking enough fluids and has there been a change in her diet?

  • She always has a sippy cup available and drinks it throughout the day, so I believe she is getting enough fluids. As far as diet change, she has been eating table food for a while now, along with whole milk but maybe we introduced a new kind of food. She eats basically what we do.

  • Then the sudden change might be a red flag. I would just keep my eye on it and make sure she is drinking more. Try to stay away from or limit binding foods like cheese and bananas.

  • Make sure she is getting some water along with her milk. I would say sounds like she needs more fiber in her diet.

  • How much milk does she drink? If my DD gets too much diary, she gets constipated pretty quickly.

  • She gets milk 3 times a day, 6 ounces each time. As well as apple juice and water

  • Take cows milk out for a week
    Replace with almond milk
    As long as sure no nut allergy
    Not soy milk, if issue with cows, many times soy not a good sub

    One week almond milk
    If poops regulate, you have your answer

    Does she have runny nose too
    If so
    This could clear with no cows milk

    Almond milk has all the nutrients as cows plus more, plus little issues that cows can have

    Nut allergy..then try rice, but not soy

  • Replace the apple juice with more water.
