Middle of night bowel movement after starting weaning - TMI

So we started weaning DS last week. Baby rice went down well so yesterday tried pear purée - hubby was in charge as I was away & gave him 2 cubes (ice cube size). He loved it, but then woke DH up at 1am having had a massive, runny, green poo that leaked everywhere. (Weaned him fully from breast to bottle so runny is a step back).

Is this a normal reaction to first foods? Did DH give him too much? Is it a sign that pear is a no-no? Do I just persevere & hope his digestion adjusts?

I'm having a similar experience except my ds poos a bit later - usually 5am. He's 6 months. Sorry i can't help but i'm interested to know if thesis a normal phase.

Their bowel movements certainly do change. Could you try offering solids at breakfast time? That might mean he has his poo earlier.

No need to restrict him to purees and fruit and veg at this age. That advice was given when babies were weaned much younger smile
