Default Diarrhea?

So i have had Ellie for exactly one week now and she is doing fantastic=) I do have one concern about her poop though. I think she may have diarrhea but im not positive. Her poop is very wet but not runny, even though it has been a couple times, and its pretty strong smelling. At first i thought it might have been because i gave her mealworms one day and a cricket and phoenix worm the next...but that was three days ago and her poop is still super soft. So basically i just want to know is that the consistency a baby poop is supposed to be or should it be more hard and logish? Also i am switching her food right now but its mixed in with her old food and the new food was part of the old mix she was on.

There's a possibility she might still be adjusting. Booster had the worst smelling soft poops the first two or three weeks after I brought him home. My one friend described it as "milkshake consistency."

I don't know if it was his age (8 to 10 or 11 weeks) of just the stress of the move, but it did take a couple of weeks to become normal. I've seen a couple of other people post this happened to them too, so i'm pretty sure it's normal.
