My baby 8 months, has poo 3 times a day! Color of poo is yellowish sticky, with solid eaten food found. Found small pieces carrots inside poo. Is it normal or my baby cannot digest?
My son sometimes when he poo also can see some solids in it.....I think some food cannot b digested
I think your baby is poo-ing normally. As long as it is sticky and not watery, it is not diarrhea. So now that you notice your baby poos 3 times a day, if this pattern changes, you will be able to recognise constipation or diarrhea more easily.
Small pieces of food can be found in my baby's poo when I didn't puree his food well enough when he was 8 mths. So you might want to consider puree-ing your baby's more finely.
i dont rmb pin having carrot bits in her poo when she started on porridge at about 6 mths old...
Up till now, Iggy still have carrot bits in his poo now. I shred the carrots into his porridge.

I am giving my baby freeze mix vegetables. So after cooking I use fork mashed up before feeding baby.
This method might not make the food fine enough that's why you can see bits in the poo. No need for alarm, just that the food is not fully digested. Puree-ing would make it finer so that everything you feed, more would get digested. Just my opinion.
I agree with diymummy. At 8 mths old, baby still do not know how to chew, as they do not have premolars to chew the food so that it will be easily digested by the stomach. It's important to puree the food as it replaces the chewing process for the baby. When your baby's food is thoroughly pureed, you won't see undigested food bits in his poo as it will be fully digested and the nutrients will be absorbed in the body. However, it's not good to see undigested food in your baby's stool, as it means that the stomach has difficulty in digesting the food. If the baby have undigested food in the stool frequently, this means the stomach will be weakened in the long run. Hope this helps.
