What's in the diaper

I know I have barely been on lately and this is sort of tmi but it's really bothering me. Aren't their bms supposed to be pretty well formed by now? Rhett gets a couple bottles throughout the day but not an abundance of liquids. He eats a ton of solids but still has very loose stools and quite often diareah. I was thinking maybe milk allergy but it's not always. Just wondering what's normal and I can't quite remember what my daughter was doing at this age. Thanks ladies!

Jordan is still nursing so this may be the reason but hers tend to be pretty mushy most of the time. But I wouldn't say it was loose like diarrhea by any means. Is this a new thing? Could it be related to teething or is it all the time? If it's all the time then maybe his Pediatrician may have some thoughts?

More on the solid line here. never really blow outs or loose stool ever actually. the only time was after we went to the ocean and I think she had a little too much salt water to drink lol

Beni still has very soft, smooshy stool quite often, but she also nurses a ton still. I get excited when I get one that "rolls off the diaper". Smile But it's not like diarrhea either. If it seems abnormal in a way that might be painful, I would talk to the ped!

Once Leyla started drinking cow's milk her poop went from mushy to mini turds (hope that's not an offensive word).

depends on what he's been eating! he eats alot of fruit, so they're definitely mushy! when he eats too many blueberries theyre more like a nuclear explosion lol. he does periodically have formed poop, but for the must part they are mushy.

Evie has mushy poop most of the time. She also nurses a lot when she's with me. Every now and again, it gets a little on the liquidy side, but it's not a usually occurrence. I would probably bring it up to the ped the next time you see them, unless you notice a rash or discomfort, then I'd schedule a visit soon.

Formed now with an occasional mushy.

It's alternates between mushy and formed but never really runny unless he's not well...could it be from what he eats? Could be a sensitivity to dairy (if you see a pattern) or anything with gluten perhaps. Bring it up with the ped and see what they have to say!
