  • Was it actually worms or was it just something that looked like it? Cause How my ped explained it is it's ok and normal for babies to have cottages cheese type (but if only breastfeeding more yellowish) but it's got clumpy stuff! As soon as we started feeding rice and fruit though it was brown! But unusual clumps are normal, I just wouldn't know anything about worms though!

  • It probably just cleaned her out. I wouldn't worry about it unless it happens again. Is this the first time you have given her anything besides breastmilk?

  • her body didn't digest the food well cause she's not ready. don't give it to her again.

  • I wouldn't worry about it unless it happens again. But if it will help you feel better, call the ER and speak to a nurse and they will tell you if you should be concerned.

  • It could be from the Banana.

  • It was most likely from the Banana and rice cereal combination. That really is not the best combo for a baby. Babies can get worms (anyone can) but I really doubt she has them.
