    Default Dark stool

    My 8 week old baby has just had a very dark stool, with tinges of yellowish/green at the edge of the nappy.
    Is this normal???
    It was her first stool today, she has had 5 very wet nappies though.

    The color and consistency of infant poop varies widely. I wouldn't be concerned with the color or consistency of your baby's stools at 8 weeks old as long as she's wetting 4-6 times in a 24 hour period.

    Is baby receiving anything other than breastmilk? Including vitamin supplements or formula? If so, then that can affect the color/consistency of stools as well.
