  • Yep. Something new going in means something new will come out. Just wait until you introduce meat...

  • Yes, it's normal. Any time you try something new it will change. Baby poop changes often. Just watch out for constipation with the rice cereal. If he gets constipated then try barley. I also found that oats makes my son gassy.

  • very normal, if your baby starts getting constipated from eating it ask your pedi. if it would be okay to mix it with a little apple prune juice.

  • Oh I love BlueFrogMama's answer! It's very true!

    And keep in mind that rice cereal can "plug up the works" while barley can help get things moving again. That can be useful to know if he gets diarrhea or constipation in the future.
