Two things:

First- is your baby's poop getting more solid? We started solids so that may be why but sometimes it is solid and sometimes loose.

Second- anyone have an older child that is in a convertible car seat with a cup holder? Is that a feature you like for your kid to have? We are researching convertible car seats and I see some with and without and wanted some feedback.

Re: Two things:

  • We haven't started solids so I can't answer that. Nothing but runny baby poop here : As for the cup holder, the convertible seat in my car has two and we use one for a sippy and one for snacks like goldfish crackers. The seat in my DH's car does not have cupholders. Its not a big deal for the sippy since most are spillproof. But snacks, yeah they go everywhere in his car. So if anything, I want at least one cupholder to use as a snackbowl in any future carseat we buy.

    We haven't started solids yet, but it's funny you mention this because I was just noticing today how DS's poop is more solid. It's probably just some random occurrence. I would think it would change once solids are introduced. So maybe that's the case for you.

    As a 3rd time Mom, my 3rd baby isn't doing food yet however, from my previous 2 kids I remember that poop will change- sometimes the peanut butter phase to more solid.  Don't worry so much about it.

    As far as car seats with cup holders- I do not allow them to drink in the car.  First, we do rear facing until at least 2 years old so I wouldn't want my child drinking when I can't keep my eyes on them.  I realize its just water but they could have a cup in their mouth at the same time we get hit and really hurt themselves.  My older kids are now 3 & 4 and its VERY rare I allow drinks.  When I do they drink only when we are stopped and not on the road.   

  • LO is still EBF, so no change yet in poop. Our convertible seat (installed yesterday!!) doesn't have cupholders, but I won't be letting LO eat or drink in the car anyway, so it wasn't an issue for us. We live in a small town, so she can wait 5 min to get somewhere.

  • 1) We're still BM only so I'm not sure.

    2) DS(4.5) has been using the Evenflo Symphony 65 LX

    since he was one, and we LOVE it. We actually have 3 (my car, DH's car, & grandma's car.) It is super easy to install & uninstall for when we have a sitter, and there is a cup holder on the side. The cup holder folds down, and it also comes off which is great for cleaning.
    There's also the Evenflo Symphony DLX http://www.target.com/p/evenflo-symphony-dlx-convertible-car-seat-ocala/-/A-14419211#prodSlot=medium_1_2&term=evenflo+symphony

  • My baby's poop changed after we started solids but only after a week or two, it's not going so fast. You should just make sure baby gets enough breastmilk and find the right solids to offer. I use very different fruits and vegetables which I get from here: http://goodmomming.com/  . I think it's a great resource for weaning.
