**TMI** Can my taking Metamucil everyday for regularity make my BFed baby have runny stools?

My DS is almost two months.  Sometimes he has really running stools that run out his diaper.  They are still bright in color, not translucent.  Is this just par for the course or could it be cause by the Metamucil?

Are you taking it or are you giving it to your baby?

Then it's fine. BF baby poop is usually pretty runny. It is also water soluble, an awesome quality if you cloth diaper :)

That's normal breastfed baby poop :)

Metamucil is just fibre, its not a stimulant. It won't be a problem for your baby.
