Ok...Ryland hasn't been pooping quite as much as usual. I'm assuming this is because I've started solids. He gets rice cereal once per day around 6pm. He had applesauce mixed in the cereal 4 days last week. And today was the third day I've offered sweet potatoes, which I fed Ryland around 11am each day. These solid feedings have not replaced his breastmilk feedings. Anyone know which foods can bind babies up and which ones loosen things up? I know prunes loosen things up, right? Sorry if TMI.

my sister is a pedi and (the same thing happened to gracie when we transitioned from bf to ff) she recommend 1/2-1 ounce 100% juice (we used apple). it worked wonders for us! gracie actually went 4 days without pooping.

I was also told that you shouldn't feed too much of an orange colored veggie, those can be binding too!

Thanks for all of the input, girls.

Now Ryland's having really runny liquidy poop. Sorry if TMI, but is it possible that the cereal I give him in the evenings is causing this since I mix the rice cereal with water? He's just so irregular. I am breastfeeding, but I can't think of anything out of the norm that I've eaten lately. And I haven't given Ryland any prunes or juice at all. Is it true that teething can throw a baby's bowels all out of whack or is that just a myth?
