Chunks of carrot in diaper

Postby sticksandbugs » 28 Oct 2010, 13:39

This morning when I changed my son, he had big (bigger than 1/4 in) chunks of carrot in his diaper. It looks as if he bit chunks off and swallowed them whole, and they didn't get digested at all. He was up a lot last night crying and difficult to settle, and I put it down to a cold + teething, but now I'm worried that he had stomach pains because of these big carrot pieces. Has anybody else seen this?
Oh, and he's 8 months old, and we've been BLW for 2 months.
Thanks
Sara

It's quite common for things to come out the same as they go in for quite a while - rehydrated raisins are a sight to behold :D - as it takes a while for the gut to learn to digest things. Puree comes out the same as it goes in but you don't notice :wink: Try not to worry!

We only stopped seeing recognisable chunks of food in Mim's nappies after her molars came through. :D

Thanks for that. I just sprayed tea out my nose. :D

Thanks everyone, that's reassuring! And I think I'll avoid raisins for the time being, carrots are traumatic enough :)

You should see peas...I freaked out at all these little round balls, thought he had some kind of bug (literally) until I remembered he'd shovelled in the sweet peas at summer the night before. Amazing what you see as a mommy :)

spinach comes through here...looks like seaweed in the mud.

I find if i give her dried apricots and other fiber-heavy snacks, her poop comes out as a nice neat ball and I don't have to look at it :)
