Do do

Maizey started her cereal at 4 months as per the doctors orders. She seems to enjoy it. We have also started her on a different formula. She LOVES the new formula. It comes in a can twice the size of the can we've been using and only costs $23.00. I know cheaper isn't always better, but she is eating this stuff so much better than the other. The only thing we have noticed is that her poop is harder. I might even say she is slightly constipated. She has been having bowel movements every day since the switch, but sometimes she only has a small (grape sized) poop nugget. I'm not worried at this point because she doesn't seem to be uncomfortable, or refusing to eat at all. Her abdomen isn't hard or bulging.
I saw a 4 week old today while out shopping, and I was a little sad. Maizey is getting so big. So sweet though. She really has a special temperment.
Things around here have pretty much been as usual. Nothing much to report. Gawd, we're boring. Hopefully once the weather gets nice I will have more adventures to post about.
Maizey and her biggest fan...Tanner.

Glad she's doing well. Watch the constipation! It really shouldn't be formed poop! Riley had that on Enfamil A+ and one day screamed bloody murder because of it. She did better on Good Start. Is that the one you were using??

Sounds like she's doing great. The constipation may be her system getting used to the new formula and/or the cereal, but like Stacey said, keep an eye on it as her poop shouldn't be hard on a regular basis. It happened to Ian now and then but never for more than a day or two. We used Good Start and didn't have constipation issues with either of the kids.

Yes, we were on good start. She was very picky and liked that best, she liked the Heinz but it got discontinued. Now she's on kirkland brand and absolutely loves it. Her poop was not formed today, so we'll keep an eye on it. Hopefully it's just her system adjusting to the new formula.
