    So usually Olivia has a poo once a day. She has been on solids for a while now and the consistency varies quite a lot!

    Today she did a poo first thing and it was tiny little bits (like little balls). They were kind of play doh consistency.

    She then had another at dinnertime which was a sloppier poo. Then another one just now thats like play doh again but just one big bit.

    Each time she's going she's straining which isnt unusual for Olivia but she seems to be straining for longer. Ive kept her topped up with cooled boiled water and she's had 12oz of milk o far as well as lunch.

    What is this? Is she constipated or what...Im confused ! Help please Mummys!! Thanks !! xx

    Logan is the same at the moment - as long as you are topping up with water she should be fine xx

    When my LO is constipated she strains and strains and only a little bit comes out which gets stuck in her bottom, it doesn't sound like your LO is constipated as she has had 3 poops today and the consistency will change all of the time with solids but if you get worried just try and give her more fruit such as pears, plums, apricots etc these usually help my LO go xx
