DTs are 6 months old and have been on solids for a month. However their poos are as different as chalk and cheese (if you know what I mean), one has what I call adult poos, shaped and in nuggets. The others is still like it was when they were just on milk, yellowish and very runny...this one also has bad eczema - do you think he may be allergic to something? Or am I just being paranoid?

I too have twins which are now 2. They have been completely different from day one including the contents of their nappy.
We still have one who has constant cler outs (to put it nicely) and the other sometimes comes accross as being constipated/rabbit droppings yet they eat the same foods with more than their fair share of fruit!

Have you discovered what triggers the eczema, as mine is an over indulgence in dairy products, so I guess having a reaction to cow's milk would be in line with that?
Possibly speaking to HV if you are still worried about, maybe asking whether you could switch to goats milk?
Hope this helps in some way.

Thanks Lely - your input is much appreciated! I will see my HV re diet and poss link with eczema.

My DTs have differing poos. Can't believe I'm about to post that lol

It all just proves my theory that they're all completely different no matter what you do.

Hasn't 6 months flown Harrogate. Mine are now 14 months. Wow!

Mine are totally diff too. Even on same milk, one can go a day or two between poos, the other goes every feed.
Now they are in diff nappies and on diff formula at night, I can't believe it. I thought they would be able to share the essentials!

are they id or fraternal ? If fraternal then there is no reason to expect them to be the same - anymore than any other two people (or at least 2 siblings) I guess.

Mine are id and generally their poo is similar () - but not always - even if they eat the same food.

they are fraternal so I guess its to be expected that lots of things differ!! Thanks to all for your input - MarsLady you are right, 6 months has gone by in a flash, we are taking them to Aus tomorrow to see DH's family so thats the next big test - planes!
