DH said baby had a couple dirty diapers that looked like remnents of meconium. She'd been having yellow (normal) stools up until that point. I read one source that said to call the doctor if she had anything other than yellow stool after day 4??

Should I? Shouldn't I??

Are your nipples cracked/bleeding? If so, she could have ingested a small amount of blood, that can darken stools. If you're worried about it, I would call the doctor.

Is it green? I heard at a LLL meeting that green poop means too much foremilk. Every once and a while DD has a greenish poop but I don't really worry about it, I figure a little "too much" foremilk here and there is not detrimental to her health.

Jenna in love with my DH Jon, loving our 2.5 year old, Caroline Tulip, and expecting another little one in August!
