    Default Poop question

    I know there are many variations of "normal" poop, but my LO has had super thin/watery poops for weeks. I can barely remember the last time she had one with a seedy consistency but it was probably a month ago. She has them after almost every feeding still. Is this one of those variations of normal? Or should they still be seedy a majority of the time?

    What's the color? My DS has tannish/yellow poops that seem more mucuosy than "seedy"- I haven't seen a seedy poop in a couple of months. I think it's still normal, though. As long as it's not green, you are probably OK if your LO isn't fussy. Green is foremilk/hindmilk imbalance, I think. Maybe some other poster can tell us if it needs to be seedy to be normal

    Here's a link I found about normal poop for BF babies

    She has a green poop once every few days, but mostly they are the dark mustardy yellow color.

    Never thought I would be looking so closely at poop!

    Sounds like it's probably fine, then. Looking at your signature, your little one is growing fast!
