    7mo. old firm poop
    1PinkFloyd posted:
    My 7 month old girl has been eating baby food for about 1 month. She still drinks 22-28oz formula a day, also. Over the last 5 days, she has been having one firm, formed poop and one "normal" poop per day. With her teething, I have been giving .4cc Acetamenaphine once or twice a day......Any suggestions on what is causing the firm poops to form? Is this normal for her age?
    Chris_WebMD_Staff responded:

    It's might be very normal for right now, it tends to change depending on what's going on as far as teething and growing. If she's having problems pooping call the doc and let him/her know. If she seems fine and not uncomfortable, then this too shall pass. :)
