  • Have you changed what she eats lately? Hardened stool (instead of mush) can mean she needs more liquids, if you are feeling her solids. I wouldn't worry about it unless she has trouble passing them. You can always ask your pediatrician if you are worried. As for the bed rail, I always kept the mattress all the way down and the rail all the way up when I was not in the room. You never know when she will decide to pull herself up. Better safe than sorry.

  • I agree that she may need water. once babies start eating real food they start to have real bowel movements! :)
