Help!!!! My Son's Bottom Is Orange!!!!

I have a 7 month old that just started baby food carrots and while I expected his poop to have an orange tinge; I did not expect his bottom to change colors. Now when I clean his bottom; I have to use wipe after wipe to get the orangish tinge off after I clean the poop off. Is there anything else I can do to get the color off beside giving him a bath every time he poops. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

                                                Thanks, Bannannagirl

Don't feed him so many carrots. Seriously. The beta carotine in carrots can literally change skin color. Try something with a bit less color to it.

If he has had other veggies (like green beans or peas) then alternate days/feedings with the carrots as you introduce them.  His poo will go back to normal.

For right now you can try to let him soak in a bath to get it off.

The orange vegetables can actually change your skin color from the inside out. My son loved carrots and sweet potato. His little nose was orange. lol I have no idea how to get it off of his tushy but here is a bump.
