Foods that cause extra poopage and/or diaper rash

My six month old will poop like a crazy person the day after eating foods that are orange, specifically sweet potatoes and carrots. Does anyone know why? This has caused him to have his first ever real diaper rash also. He is exclusively breastfed, not that that makes a difference. He really seems to like to eat these foods, it's a shame he'll have to wait a while to try again.

Thanks!

I can't be the only one! Could it be the beta carotene?

Well I don't know about orange foods, but my 2 yr. old poops alot if he eats chicken of any kind. It also happens if he drinks choc. milk. Sorry wish I could help. If you get an answer I would love to hear it.

ALWAYS, ANGEL
