Diaper close-up: Dark brown, firmer, and smellier.
When it happens: Introducing solids
What's going on? Prepare your nose for a workout as new foods are introduced. The appearance -- color, consistency -- may change day to day, depending in your baby's diet. What comes out can look eerily similar to how it appeared when it went in.
How to handle: Introducing a new fruit might cause loose stools temporarily -- cutting back on it a bit should give your baby time to adjust. Dairy, meat, and egg yolks (to reduce allergy risk, talk with your doctor about when to serve egg whites) tend to produce the stinkiest poops.
