    Hiya,
    I'll post this in BFing too but thought I'd post here as she's pretty much a toddler now.
    My lo is almost 1 years (2 weeks to go) and her last two poos have been super runny and bright yellow, She been having solid poo's since about 5 months when we began weaning. She is BF 3 times a day and eats not a huge amount but a good amount of food (eg, big handful cheerios for breakie, 1/4 bit of toast and handful of blueberries for lunch, 3 or 4 small tatties and some meat for tea plus snacks in between.
    The only change I've made to her is stopping her night feeds as she used to snack all night and not eat much during the day. I did try give her a little cows milk a week ago but she only ended up having a few sips so I cant imagine thats caused 2 lots of poo (about 3 days apart) to be runny and yellow.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    My LO just had a virus and it made her poop a bit more runny and more 'newborn korma coloured' (oh and the smell). I did a search when my own LO had this and could only find things about either teething or a virus, it could be one or the other? :flower:

    For us it's generally teething and the extra saliva swallowed that makes it runny. The color can depend on what she ate - lots of mashed carrots will result in some interesting shades.

    I'd say don't worry too much yet - make sure you offer enough fluids (water) to prevent dehydration and be on the lookout for fever or other symptoms.
