I wouldn't worry about the color of baby's poop. Both of my girls and all of the kids I nannied were the same way. Whatever the color of the food going in was almost exactly the same color coming out the other end. This continued for at least 3-6months if not a little longer. Once their diets became more varied with foods such as they were eating crackers, cheerios, fruit, veggie, meat, toast etc then their poop started to look more like yours and mine. Good luck and try not to worry about its color.

Thanks Guys. I looked this morning at her poop (isnt this lovely LOL) and it has some brown in it.. so that tells me that something is getting digested. I feel some better now. I think you guys are right and it is just her body getting used to it.

I really appreciate your feedback. All of us mommies get so worried about our little ones... and I think that the first babies get the most of that since we don't know what is normal or not. :) I will let you all know what the doc says on the 4th.

I've seen some poops like that from my son (he's will be a year on Fri.). At first, their bodies don't quite digest things the way ours do. They are still developing.

As far as gaining weight, once they start moving, they tend to thin out and, although they are getting taller, they aren't gaining any weight. My daughter actually lost weight from her 9 month appointment to her 12 month appointment although she got taller.

I really hope that it is just her adjusting. Thank you. We have to take her to the doc in 2 weeks anyway, so I think that I will keep a journal of poos and then I will know more of what we are dealing with.

Thank you again so much. :)

I'm not sure. Maybe it's her digestive system adjusting to the foods? I'm sure you could call your Pediatrician and ask to be sure.

But is it normal for there to be no poop color. Like if she ate apples, avocado, and a carrot... it looks like you took those foods mashed them in your hand and placed it in her diaper. All I find on the internet looks like brown poop with small amounts of food in it, or some coloring. She does not have that. Just food.

I know when it comes to solids, most orange foods tend to come out around the same color. My son will be 9 months on the 26th. He's been eating solids since 4.5 months. Carrots and sweet potatoes tend to look almost the same as it went in for some reason.

Ok... I have a question.

I have a 9 month old who was EBF until 8 months and now she is eating solids as a compliment to BM (meaning she has the same amount of BM). I knew that her poop would change with solids... but I am concerned that it is not normal. It literally looks like you took the solids I fed her mashed them in your hand and put them in her diaper. If she ate Sweet potato... it looks like Sweet potato. No brown, yellow, or green poop colors. Is this normal?

Not sure if it is related... but she is also not gaining weight. Which I am less concerned about since I know this child is on the move 24/7 and she is hitting or exceeding milestones and very happy and engaging.

Any thoughts?
