Hi all! My DD2 is 3 weeks old. Basically since birth, her poop pattern has been a little puzzling. She took just over 24 hours to pass meconium, pooped 4 times in the hospital, pooped 3 times day 3 (transitional stools), 2 times on day 4 (yellow BF poop) and since then... maybe a big poop every 1-3 days. When she goes, the poops are very liquidy with very little curds, but a normal sweet smell and yellow/mustard color. There is sometimes some "frothing" as she goes so I think there's a bit of an oversupply thing going on too.
The docs screened her for Hirschsprung's (didn't do a biopsy though, but did other tests) at my insistence, but aren't concerned because she is gaining weight like crazy. She actually gained in the hopsital, from 6 lb 5 oz to 6 lb 10 oz. At last weigh-in late last week, she was 8 lb 3 ounces already.
What I'm trying to figure out is whether there are other moms of infrequent newborn poopers like me? Am I alone? My first DD was a poop machine. This strikes me as so abnormal and I'm trying not to worry or assign some sort of medical issue to it. Any thoughts?
