My baby loves sweet potatoes and carrots so far as far as baby food goes...I know their poop changes when they start eating solids...Is it normal for it to become a little more solid in consistancy...I mean not HARD ROCKS but more solid?

oh yes.... i found that out the hard way. i was so scared that something was wrong but its totally fine. now that he is eating solids make sure hes starting to have a regular bowel movement (daily) if not maybe he isnt eating enough during the day. dont stuff him but try feeding more often. also if his stool is a little hard for him to push out try giving him water or prunes.

i knoe im young but ive learned this through experience with my little one. hope this helps.
