    poppy has always been like that, so it's normal for us. I guess if he's seeming fine and eating ok he's probably fine. But if you're worried then best to get it checked just to put your mind at rest

    Has anything been changed with his feeds? or weaning? It depends alot on that really, the only thing I would say is make sure he is getting enough fluids, offer him some water as with diarrhoea they can become dehydrated very easily, if ur worried u could always ring the doctors to speak to one of them or ring nhs direct

    He might be ready for foods?

    Lexie's have been like that on and off now for a couple of weeks. Some days there hard and she forces them out. Then others it's really runny it goes everywhere. I've just started her on foods today properly, and have noticed a massive difference in her poos. They've gone smooth, and she doesn't struggle nor or they runny. So I think that's what it was in Lexie's case.

    I would still speak to your doctor about it. See what they say. :D
