for children health:
ask your child daily happenings after coming back home. understand him/her what they are facing and how they are handling issues of their life. this will help child to learn sharing stresses. guide them correct way of dealing with their problems. always punishing scolding shouting on child is not the proper way to handle them. Parents must have patience while dealing with children.

Baby Poop - What's Normal & What's Not

Baby Poop - What's Normal & What's Not

As a new mother, you will be always in a constant state of worry whether you are doing things right. And of those many, many things you worry about, your baby’s bowel movements are one of them.

A baby’s poop is a sign of his/her health. Thus, you do need to know what is normal and what needs medical attention. Read on to know more about your baby’s poop.

What’s Normal?

The kind of poop depends on how you are feeding your child. If you breastfeed the baby, his/her poop will be:

  1. Small in size—no bigger than a coin

  2. Light in colour, usually a greenish-brown or bright yellow

  3. Sloppy in texture

The first few weeks of breastfeeding will produce waste daily, after each feed. The frequency will diminish later, but that is not a concern, as long as the waste is easily passed and is soft.

If you are feeding your child formula, the poop will be different. You will notice that the poop is:

  1. Bulkier

  2. Yellow-ish brown or pale yellow in colour

  3. Smells stronger

The next worry you have is when you change your baby’s feeding routine. When you switch from breastmilk to formula, you will notice:

  1. The poop is darker in colour.

  2. The texture becomes thicker.

  3. The smell also becomes stronger.

The other dramatic change you will see is when your baby starts eating solids.

What isn't Normal?

There are mostly two things you need to be concerned about: diarrhoea and constipation. Both of these conditions mostly affect babies who are formula-fed.

If your baby has diarrhoea, you will notice:

  1. The poop is runny

  2. Frequency and amount of poop is increased

And if you suspect constipation, be aware of the following signs:

  1. Your baby finds it difficult to poop

  2. The poop is dry and small

  3. The tummy is hard when you touch it

  4. There might be blood in the poop

Green poo:

If you're breastfeeding, green poo can be a sign that your baby is taking in too much lactose (the natural sugar found in milk). This can happen if she feeds often, but doesn't get the rich milk at the end of the feed to fill her up. Make sure your baby finishes feeding from one breast before you offer her your other one.

If you are feeding your baby formula milk, the brand you are using could be turning your baby's poo dark green. It may be worth switching to a different formula to see if that has any effect.

If the symptoms last longer than 24 hours, visit your health visitor or GP. The cause may be:

  • a food sensitivity

  • side-effects of medication

  • your baby's feeding routine

  • a stomach bug

Very pale poo:

Very pale poo can be a sign of jaundice, which is common in newborns. Jaundice causes your newborn's skin and the whites of her eyes to look yellow, and usually clears up within a couple of weeks of birth. Tell your midwife or doctor if your baby has jaundice, even if it looks like it's going away.

Also tell your midwife or doctor if your baby is passing very pale, chalky white, poos. This can be a sign of liver problems, especially where jaundice lasts beyond two weeks.

Hi My daughter is one month old, my mother in law says to give her saffron mixed in bread milk. As they used to give it to their daughter for complexion improvement. Is it safe to give it at this age?

My 1 month daughter keeps crying due to some problem. I have observed that she has passed stool only once in a day which is smelly like sour milk and whenever she tries to pass gas, she face difficulty in passing it. Also she is throwing lots of milk and not burping much beside keeping her on shoulder for 30 minz. Colicaid is also not helping her.

It sounds like colic but I understand colicaid drops have not helped. Try lactase enzyme drops like neosmile drops 4- 5 drops in expressed breast milk (about 1 spoon) to be fed 15 minutes before feeding, then breastfeed as normal. Use 3- 4 times a day. Continue to burp the baby during every feed. Another important thing to observe us to completely empty feeding from one breast before changing to other breast. Partial feeding from each breast will cause colic and also baby will not get the goodness of fat filled hind milk which comes in the end. Throwing up milk could be normal if in small amounts. Some babies have gastric reflux and throw up a lot. Please consult pediatrician to confirm the same. They could prescribe rantac syrup if necessary and also can weigh the baby and assess.

My sister delivered a girl child on 6th of September 2016 through vaginal delivery. But the baby did not cry at first but she cried after 5 minutes. She was breastfeeding normal but after some time she choked and had breathing problem. She was kept in NICU for two days and has not taken breast milk. Doctor said that baby did not get sufficient oxygen to brain at first so it may cause complication in future. We are worried. Help.

The first problem delayed cry can cause hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy HIE, this means brain injury, can have developmental, mental and brain related problems in future, shd be periodically examined by your Dr. to assess and guide you. 2nd problem appears to be aspiration.

Atleast till 6 months you should only breastfeed her and donot give anything else to the baby if not advised by doctor. Just breastfeed her timely and give the medicines as suggested by pediatrician. Have a healthy and fast recovery.

Birth asphyxia may result in defective development of the brain. If his developmental milestones are delayed he needs supportive care like physiotherapy, speech therapy, occupation therapy etc.
