Weaning and baby poo!

Not sure if I'm positing in the right section but wondering if any one can offer advice/been in the same situation.
Dd is 6.5months old and we've been weaning for just under a month. We've been taking things slow due to silent reflux so she just has fruit or veg purée or baby rice, at breakfast and lunch. We are yet to do dinner. She has potential CMPA so cautious to introduce dairy. She's breastfed.
Dd has always had what I call an active bottom - pooing at least once a day. However over the last week she's been pooing non stop - I'm talking 8,9 times. It basically seems that whatever she eats goes straight through her. The last two nights we've also had to do multiple nappy changes at night, and this isn't something we've ever had to do.
Just wondering if this is normal? Everyone told me babies get constipated when weaning but we seem to have the opposite problem. It also doesn't seem to matter what the food is that she's had.
Anyone been through the same? I'm scared to introduce dinner because I fear she'll be up pooing all night.

Maybe ease up or avoid fruit for a few days and see what happens?

How many times a day are you offering solids Em? Also, has the very limited diet been advised by a Paed or Paed Dietician?

EmW1987 Sun 21-May-17 15:10:05

At the moment we are only offering her solids twice a day. Breakfast and lunch.
@everyonetalkaboutpopmusic unfortunately we are still awaiting the dietician referral. We've been slow introducing foods because of the reflux so will introduce a single fruit or veg for a couple of days to see if anything triggers it. I guess maybe I need to introduce dairy and see how she reacts - she has a few symptoms that suggest cows milk intolerance such as eczema and cradle cap, but it was the health visitor that suggested it could be a dairy intolerance, she's a big girl and I know typically an intolerance would make it harder for them to gain wait.

Offering solids twice a day is a lot at 6.5 months. Some of the things you are experiencing could be partly down to the fact that her digestive system is still a little immature. Could you just offer food at breakfast only for a few days and see if she improves any? The guidelines say that you should move up to offering solids 3 times a day between 8 and 9 months so there's no rush to do it yet smile

Hace you found the MN Weaning talk yet too? smile

No value in baby rice at all. It can harm their digestive systems. Could you switch for something else? Scrambled egg/proper porridge/toast fingers?

EmW1987 Sun 21-May-17 17:42:02

Oh @everyonetalkaboutpopmusic that's good to know. I'll try reducing it down. I thought we were going slow with weaning but you are right, there's no rush!
I haven't found the weaning talk yet - need to find that!
@tittygolightly I didn't realise that. I'll try something different.

I'd avoid baby rice if she's poss cmpi

In fact, with reflux and allergy you could stop weaning altogether for another couple of weeks...

You could also try Neocate spoon

Weaning and poo talk smile

EmW1987 Sun 21-May-17 19:08:25

Thank you so much!
@onlyabitsressed I'd never heard of neocate spoon, this forum is great!

EveryoneTalkAboutPopMusic Sun 21-May-17 19:43:42

I possibly sound a bit clueless, but what is Neocate Spoon? Disclaimer: it's me with the CMPA, not the DC smile

OnlyABitStressed Sun 21-May-17 20:48:55

But bc might be cow protein intolerant too!

Neocate spoon is special (prescription) food for babies with cmpi!
