Can we talk about poop for a second?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello mamas. I am trying to figure out if my LO has food sensitivities, and I am stumped when it comes to the poop. I have never seen anything that I would call yellow and/or seedy. Her poops have been varying shades of bright orange to orange-brown ever since the meconium ended. She's 3.5 months old now. She had jaundice until just before 6 weeks, could she still be passing bilirubin, causing the orange poops? Also, what do "mucousy" stools look like? When I read allergy threads, everyone seems to be shooting for "yellow and seedy", but everything else I read assures me that there are many variations of  normal for BF babies.

 

She has never had blood in her stools, nor has she had any green or frothy poops. The only other possible symptoms of allergy are stuffy nose (since about 2 weeks of age) and gas.

 

Never thought I'd have such a vested interest in poop ROTFLMAO.gif

My guy is three months old and his poop is more orange or tan generally.  Totally normal.  Even green isn't necessarily something to worry about unless it's frothy or mucousy.

Here's a visual guide I found rather helpful when I was trying to figure out the poop thing.  The mucus one is second to last.  http://www.babycenter.com/baby-poop-photos
