Over the last couple of days I have been noticing chunks of undigested food in DS poopy nappies.   Carrot, potatoes, pretty much anything he had eaten that was lumpy food.  

Is this normal?  His poop has never been like this before.  I have seen chunks before but not to this extent.

Is it possible that I need to make his food a bit more mashed?  I have just been cutting into small prices which he is not chewing and just seems to swallow whole.

Tonight mashed it more, and if it continues will take him to the doctors.  (yuk question but should I take evidence?)

i guess he just isnt chewing it properly, does he have enough teeth to chew?

TMI but my DS once pooped out a whole grape! im just glad he didnt choke on it going down!.

If you're really interested, have a good look at your own, LOL.

Some things aren't easily digested by people, (such as corn kernels and tomato skins.)

roll2.gif  Wait until you start them on lots of sultanas!  My little monster nicked and ate an entire box a few days ago.  Her nappies were rank, stinky and full of sultanas that now resembled grapes again.. She even tried to eat one as it rolled out of ner nappy.  Foul child.
Totally normal.

Before my daughter was chewing much and if she ate sultanas, we used to get them coming right through and out into the nappy, but much juicier looking LOL!!! I think it is pretty common to get bits of food coming through. I never took her to the doctor about it.

Blueberries are also very concerning... I'm almost glad they're out of season.. aka too expensive for me to even look at.

pretty normal. just wait until you get to the lovely toddler nappies wink.gif

ds2 does poop out chunks. he loves his chunky food but he only has 2 teeth and 2 teeth just cut so no chewing is happening yet though he does gum things to death

Rinse and feed again Tounge1.gif  wink.gif  

That was the joke I'd use sometimes to describe the meal that was in my DD's nappy.... Still at 2 a meal is very well defined in there.

When she was a lot younger (say 8-9ish months) I fed her the heinz baby alphabet pasta. Now have you ever seen alphabet poo??? It's a funny suprise to see in the nappy!

Easy Mac looks like little white slugs/worms in her nappy. IStill makes me laugh a little on the inside when I see this!

Ohh and the sultanas - I hate it when she's been on a sultana bender!

This!!!!!!


When I first started Nannying and saw re-hydrated saltanans in a very full nappy I couldn't eat or look at them for months!!!!!!!!!

Try sesame seeds!!!! I had one male boss in a big panic as he couldn't work out what they were in his little girl's poo.... I got called into the bedroom on my day off (live in nanny) to look and advise at which I burst into laughter telling him what they were!!!!! That girl never chewed her food properly even when she had full mouth of teeth....
