The title pretty much says it all.

My LO's poop and gas is realllllly stinky, like an adult man's! (The poo is bright yellow but pretty watery.) Is this definitely a sign that he isn't tolerating something I'm eating?

When DS was about 3 months old he started going longer between poops and would pass horrible smelling gas in the mean time. His poop was dark yellow and not as "seedy" as it had been. The LC and ped were not concerned, and he never showed any apparent ill-effects.

Okay, that makes me feel better, thanks! He has been going drastically longer between poops (he went from pooping at just about every feeding, to pooping once every two days or so), so maybe that's it.

My DS did this at 4 weeks. He started going a week between poos. Not only was it really smelly but when the poo came, it was projectile and always when I was changing him.

This post makes me feel a lot better, because what you are describing fits us to a "T".
