...baby poop becomes solid when they start eating solid food. It will get thicker after a couple Weeks, if you picked the right one.

I didn't make a clean switch since I was trying to provide pumped breast milk as much as I could and just giving formula when the BM ran out, but I do remember noticing fairly quick changes in consistency. Meaning, the BM poos were softer, lighter and seedier and the FF poos were a little thicker and darker, and I'd usually see the change the same day. But it never was all runny... if anything the BM poos were closer to "runny" than the FF poos. That doesn't seem right to me. Oh, and he never got constipated on formula - was first constipated when eating solids (he LOVED bananas and I let him have too much.)  

Maybe talk to your pediatrician about it? There might be something else going on.

Your baby is one month old. You should not see solid poop for at least another five months, when solids can be introduced. If you see solid poops sooner than that, there is a problem.

Sorry I should clarify - the others are right that the poo doesn't really get solid until the baby starts eating solids. Even FF poo is still pretty soft (just not as thin as BM poo). And I only suggested talking to the ped so s/he can see what it looks like because I know that not every baby responds well to every kind of formula, so if the baby seems to be having real digestive issues with this transition that's a problem (especially if he was okay on BM).

It goes back and forth for my ds. It depends on the type if formula too. He's ff now
