Joseph was having rusk mixed with breastmilk for about a week, just a few spoonfuls once a day, then i moved to sweet potato and squash. With the rusk his bowel movements were just fine, added sweet potato and still fine (just a slightly different colour lol), aded in squash and his bowel movement this morning was a lot harder than ever before. Not like solid rabbit droppings or anything but just a lot more solid than before and he had to squeeze to get it out. Joseph doesn't have a bowel movement everyday and never has so the fact he's still going every 2nd or 3rd day isn't worrying me. It's the squeezing and the firmness of it, is this normal?? None of my girls had this problem. They would take water with meals though and joseph isn't keen on his water

Kirsty has always strained when she went onto solid foods, but she's never gotten a cut or teat and no bleeding - look out for these things.

What I would recommend if he isn't keen on water, is to add extra water to the foods you make.

Is it butternut squash you mean?

p.s. if the extra water doesn't help... as disgusting as it sounds, but you could add a tiny splash of prune juice to his food - I had to do that for a while
