Q.

Stinky poo

Hi. My 12 month old son's poo is very smelly lately, Im just wondering if this is normal ? His not constipated and the colour and texture of the poo seems fine. If its normal, why is this? Someone told me that its the food that Im eating thats causing it, Im still breastfeeding him.

Your baby seems well and happy and his stools are normal. It is not possible to inform you with certainty why his stools should be rather foul smelling now, but it is probably due to something in your diet as you are still breast feeding him.
