    Default Undigested food in baby poo

    My 1 year old had quinoa for dinner last night and this morning I was cleaning whole quinoa from his poo. This has happened previously when we had lentil Dahl and it looked exactly the same in his nappy as it went in when he was eating it. Is this normal?

    Yep. My kids have had corn kernels, sultanas etc in their poops. What the body cannot digest it just moves out.

    Yes. Bananas come out as stringy bits just fyi. DS2 ate part of a crayon once and it came out whole which was fairly disturbing.

    Omg sultanas are the funniest. I was so confused about why there were grapes in my daughters nappy until I showed hubby and he said they're not grapes, they're re-hydrated sultanas lol! Our childless male friends were in awe and wanted to see a photo haha. So yep, completely normal!

    My MIL told me she found grapes in DP's nappy once! I wasn't sure whether to believe her but it sounds like she was telling the truth

    Remember that babies don't have many teeth for crushing food, so a lot of stuff gets swallowed whole and comes out the same way.

    Another good one is nappy after kiwi fruit! So many little black seeds. I found lots of weird whole food in my sons nappy when he was a baby.

    Oh yeah we've had some bits of grape skin too! I had googled it and something said they aren't digesting it therefore the body can't handle it and aren't getting any nutrients so thought I'd ask the experts on Bubhub ;-) thanks!

    My dd used to love playing withy catalouges and then started to eat them (I'd say around 6mths old) I tried to get them off her before she put them in her mouth but sometimes she got them in.

    I could read the text in her poop :\
