RE: A solid food and poop question
Lauren, no good suggestions but I offer you my sympathy. My DD is just a few days younger than Julia and it sounds like they have similar poop.
I have to sheepishly admit that the daycare has dealt mostly with the nasty blowouts (I can figure it out immediately when I walk in and she's wearing a different outfit).
But I wanted you to know that the "sludgy" poop was not abnormal. We have that as well. It's almost like watered down pudding, isn't it?
Perhaps the absence of cereal is the reason her poop isn't as "solid" as your other kids were, since baby cereals tend to bind?
Oh, I have a poop story to share. On Monday morning, I was changing her diaper while watching Good Morning America. I got distracted and she crawled away. No biggie, I figured she'll get some fresh air on her tush. After a few minutes, I look up and notice some "stuff" on several areas of the carpet. The girl pooped and was crawling all over the place, leaving a trail behind her. It was pretty gross. DH tried to help clean the carpet while I cleaned the baby and I swear he was gagging. Thank goodness, Oxy Clean actually got all the stains out!
