My dd is 4 weeks old. Today her poos were extrememly FOAMY. That's the only way I can describe it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> What is this???<br><br>
I know (or thought I did) she is getting enough hindmilk....could it be anything else? Anyone know what I am talking about?

Was it green and stinky? If it wasn't all that stinky, but was green, she probably has an intolerance to something that you are eating.

It may be an intolerance or just totally normal. Both of my babes have had foamy poop. I am still trying to figure out if DS has an intolerance to something I'm eating but even when I went off of dairy for 20 days he still had occasional foamy poop. If everything else is fine, I wouldn't worry.

Sounds like normal infant poopies, then. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Don't you just love how all of a sudden, we become moms, and we're all enamored with poop colors and consistencies?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/broc1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Broccoli">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="carrot"> <<< dancing poopies!

She is still so tiny and young and her body is still adjusting to eating and digesting and pooping. If it gets stinkey or youjust don't fell right, call the dr. You could try and watch your diet, wheat and dairy and nuts are the most common. Is she fussy at all?
