Does your baby have the "seedy" poop? Lennon doesn't. It's also not a bright yellow like I think it should be, it's more of a brown mustard than a yellow mustard. It's runny and stinky rather than "sweet" smelling and no seediness. I've been having problems with my milk supply. It just never came in right, it seems. It came in really slow and gradual and then from the beginning I just haven't had much. She was still dropping weight at over a week old and she is peeing and pooping plenty but her poops are not the typical EBF poop, so I worry that it has something to do with her not getting enough or not getting proper hindmilk or something. I'm taking massive quantities of galactagogue herbs but I don't even see a difference. Why is my body failing me NOW? I don't have any idea why this happened. She was late to start nursing well...she was not interested at all the first 24 hrs and was super sleepy, but even with that - I can't imagine it effecting my milk coming in and my supply that much! We are nursing constantly and she doesn't seem hungry, she is content and doesn't cry. She is pooping and peeing plenty...but she is slow gaining and her poop is a darker, runny color that doesn't even smell like that sweet, seedy EBF I remember from my other kids. Also, her poops are pretty muscusy. I can't remember if that is normal. My last baby had GERD so badly, that she could never keep enough down and I remember her poops being more like Lennon's. Darker and not seedy, with mucus. Lennon rarely spits up, but I worry she isn't taking in enough.
Anyone's baby not have seedy poops, does it vary in normal from baby to baby, maybe?
