Q:

hiii...I fed my 7 month old water melon today for the first time in very small quantity. It was a very small piece hand mashed but after that he pooped twice with watermelon as fed to him. Does this mean indigestion.  Should I avoid melon for now. He is not showing any sign of discomfort. Hope there is nothing to worry.

watermelon is usually fine... bit did he poop melon bits immediately? i mean it takes time to process the food and all...

Watermelon​ are really good. It will help release gas. And good during summer. Please run in mixie and strain it. Then give to drink. Poop is due to pressure after eating melon...gastric. The melon remnants are undigested fibre of melon. It's quite normal. Nothing to worry. No need to add salt or sugar to juice. Try coconut water as wel.

its common for babies to poop food bits, like if you feed carrots or beetroots, there will be carrots and beetroots in poop... see if baby is showing any other discomfort... if yes, then dont give... else its fine
