since ur dr has seen the motions/stools and test have turned out normall,,,i would rely on it..
just keep an eye on it. if the stools are totly green,,,make it a concern to your dr.
stop carrots and avoid giving it as of now.some kids were sensitive to foods that high in beta carotene(carrots,sweet potatoes etc)..but being an infant age,,its early to conclude that...try after some 15-20days and see..offer the carrots, peeled(outerskin),boiled, mashed and strained ! strained so that hard fibrs in it are out and babies when started on solids to upto 8-9months,,needs strained pureed food as straining them thru the mesh, makes them easy to digest !!!
so offer accrdly..thats all i can say upto my reach.
carrot does not give frothy or green stool...if your baby is sensitive to carrots,,he might have got orange to yellow, or yellow to reddish/marronish type of colour,...and not green !
ABDEC,ferrium is baby vitamin(correct me if m wrong)..and it contains iron.which explains that he had bowels aftr a long gap.
why has your dr prescribed these extra supplements ? bowel movements have nothn to do wth supplemnts,,unless your child has shown ne lack of vitamin or iron or the supplemnts he has given contain high fibr,,whch is unlikely in case of infant/babiees below 2years...,
keep an eye on green colour..
about bm feeds,,make sure he takes it more often and if required, you can pump and store it,,and now that she is 6mnths, you cant expect her to pass bowels after all feeds,,the schedule might change dpnding on solids introduced,,so expect certain change or pattern or schedule change in that...
your 6months old should be on proper bm feeds, and not only 3times,,her total intake of formula or bm should be as below :
it will give you all idea hw to introduce foods and how much to give, bm and formula feeds, solids and wat all to plan for all the way upto 9months.
also go thru belw for the order in which you will offer vegies or fruits,,it will help you :
