  • Totally normal. You'll be seeing all kinds of different colors and textures as your little one learns to digest all these new foods.

  • Yup. Wait 'til you give the baby creamed meats, especially chicken. I cannot begin to describe the foul aroma and bizarre texture! lol

  • Yes it is totally normally. My daughters favorite is Prunes mixed with blueberries and her poopie looks horrible! It's been orange, green, yellowish, ect. It has always changed depending on what I fed her. lol

  • Yes, especially if its like carrots, sweet potatos etc. lol Its just like ours. But the doctor should have warned you.
