DD is 6 mo. Just started oatmeal (very thinned out with breastmilk).

Sleeps been off ever since - short naps, more wake periods at night (she was averaging 1 before this, sometimes none). Her tummy is gurgling and she seems uncomfortable. Stools are dark and some diarrhea.

Is this normal stuff? Older DD took to solids like a champ, no issues that I remember.I keep thinking it's probably her system adjusting to a new food.

I'm not sure what to do to help her feel better! I've been giving tummy rubs and helping her kick her legs so she's getting things moving. I have offered gas drops a few times. She seems most comfortable when upright.

Should I be avoiding oatmeal and moving on to a puree?

Help a tired mama out!
