I forgot to ask the ped when I was there last time with Madison and am wondering if this is a bit out of the ordinary, so I thought I'd check in here before calling and bothering them again.
A small bit of background that may or may not help, I think we are finally over the oversupply issues, though I do still try and do block feedings with her. She was diagnosed with a UTI on Dec. 1 when we went back for a recheck on an ear infection she had. She was on antibiotics for the UTI, I didn't do antibiotics for the ear infection, just BM in the ears. Because she was so young with a UTI the doctor sent her in for testing, a renal ultrasound and a bladder/dye test. All the tests came back just fine for the anatomy and her last urine sample from last week came back clean, so the UTI most likely was just a fluke.
Anyways, my real question is her bowel movements. Since about 3 months old she went down to one bowel movement about once a day, sometimes every other day. They are always either the deep yellow/orange color or a green color depending on how block feeding was going, but they usually at least had some sort of substance to them. She's 6 1/2 months now, but in the last probably 6 weeks maybe, her poop is basically all liquid, very little, if any actual substance to it. She spent about a week, 3 weeks ago, while on the antibiotics for the UTI, but before the testing, where she was going about 2-3 times a day, but went back to about 1 time a day. Since Christmas, where I gave her her first solids of sweet potatoes, she went christmas day and didn't poop again til yesterday. It had little remnants of sweet potatoes in it, but other than that was all liquid as usual. Is this at all considered ordinary or is it something I should be worried about? Is it just that she's digesting the BM well enough not to have much waste? I know it will change as I introduce solids, but is there something I should be looking for?
If it continues I had planned on asking the doctor about it when we go back for her next well baby visit, but since she's not getting her shots, I didn't plan on doing that again til February. I'm just wondering if its something I should call and ask about sooner.
