I started weaning DS at 6 months and he has done very well on purees. I'm now making them more lumpy etc and over the past week and a bit have introduced chicken and beef, both of which he enjoyed. He is doing more solid poos, which is to be expected I'm sure, but for the past 2 mornings, he has woken up with poo in his nappy. Is this usual? I thought babies rarely poo'd in their sleep. I haven't discounted that he might have done it between waking up and me actually getting him up - hard to tell as poo has been pretty solid bith times so couldn't really see how long it had been there IYSWIM. If he had poo'd in his sleep, is it anything to worry about.

Sorry, first time mum stupid type question. smile

My LO, 99% of the time has a dirty nappy when he wakes in the morning! bl**dy annoying as I am convinced this is why he wkaes early in the morning...

I have started giving him tea at 5.15pm (used to be 4.30pm when he was 7mo) and that has helped make the 'poo' arrive later in the morning (about 12 hours after he has eaten!!).

I don't think it is bad for them, just a bit gross - my LO won't go back to sleep unless I change him! grin

they don't need to wake up for long - dd used to roll over, poo, and go straight back to sleep again at 1am ish hmm

she'd then wake starving for a feed at 3am, having forgotten all about the poo, and be furious when I changed her...

DS started to poo in the night when I started weaning properly. He also pood like a crazy thing for several weeks - 3-4 big ones a day, I'm sure he wasn't actually digesting anything! It was annoying as I often had to blearily change a poo nappy at 5am which I was not used to! It settled down and he usually does his poo after morning bottle now, although occasioanlly has one all ready for me when he wakes up

Thanks all. This is reassuring. If he is pooing during the night, it doesn't seem to be bothering him as he is sleeping through still.
