My Baby's Poo Stinks

No more sweet smelling baby poo for Lil' D. We started to give her Happy Bellies Organic Brown Rice Cereal five days ago. The first cereal induced stool scared the mess out of me. I think she was startled too, because she realized the consistency was different then before. Initially I mixed the cereal with bottled water because I didn't have any thawed milk. Once I began work and started to pump again I began to put 1 tablespoon for every 2 ounces of breastmilk.
First go with rice cereal!
"When babies begin solid foods, the appearance and smell of their stools will change quite dramatically. This is particularly noticeable in breastfed babies, whose stools were previously of a smooth texture and relatively 'sweet' smelling!  Once your baby is introduced to solids, his stools will often be the colour of the food he ate."

Today we introduced Lil' D to mashed avocado. If you've been reading this blog from the beginning you know how anal I am about doing research about EVERYTHING. So I did some looking into the nutritional values of three food {banana, avocado, and sweet potato}, and decided to try out avocado first.

So I choose avocado as the first food because of its easy preparation and high nutritional value.
