Diaper Drama- Baby Stools

Print Friendly

By Megha


Hello mommies. Here am I with another cute and short article related to you baby’s stool.

What you see in your baby’s diaper might give you some idea about what’s going on inside his system.

  • The stool should be soft and golden yellow ( don’t count the first few days, when the poop can go from black to green)
  • In breastfed babies, stools may be slightly grainy. This is normal
  • Bottle-fed babies are more likely to suffer from constipation.
  • Green and watery stools might be a cause of worry as they are an indication of infection.
  • If the stool is consistently pale and looks like cement, it could be a sign of obstruction in the liver.
  • Black tarish stool is also not normal.

Consult your paediatrician in all the above three cases.

So I hope it is not only the feed that you give to the baby that is important but also the excreta that he/she gives off plays an important role in signifying the baby’s health.
