She has been having super soft and especially stinky poops these last few days. Yesterday she suffered her first blow out in months! Usually her poops have some form to them. Not super hard, but not super soft either. She is regular, still on her same schedule. Just super soft. It doesn't appear to be diarrhea. She has no other symptoms. I did introduce some things new to her. Slowly increased her table food, which doesn't seem to be cause of this. For one thing, she isn't eating that much of it and I don't think it is enough to cause this. For another, she is still eating her purees like she likes. The only new flavor of that I introduced to her was beef. I haven't given any more beef stuff to her since this bowel issue.
I called her pediatrician to ask his opinion if I need to bring her in once I described her problem. He says there isn't much he can do for her. He suggested stopping whatever new foods I introduced to her and that was it.

Could she be working on some teeth? Eleanor has had this happen a few times since she started teething... usually a week or two before she cuts a tooth. She normally has formed poops, so it is really odd for her, too. When it starts happening I just try to limit the acidic foods I give her (not always easy, since she is addicted to cherry tomatoes ) and give her some extra bananas and/or toast. If you have recently introduced a completely new food (especially the big allergens or citrus), you could stop for a few days and try it again. I am a part time nanny and have seen a couple of other kids have periodic soft stool between the ages of 8 months or so and 2 years, so it is most likely nothing to worry about. I would just keep an eye on her, make sure she is staying hydrated, and watch for diaper rash... with Eleanor these soft poops give her an instant rash.
