    Default normal breastfed baby stool vs. diarrhea

    Hi. I am new to posting, and I am confused (insecure) about my baby's stools. My DS (11 weeks) had a gastrointestional upset with vomiting and diarrhea about a month ago and had to be hospitalized for dehydration. He out of the hospital now and eating and gaining well. He has a wet diaper everytime he is changed (almost after every feeding), but I am so confused as to his stools. They are mustard yellow (so the right color), and have substance to them (not exactly seedy) and don't absorb into the diaper. Is this normal?!

    That's what my baby has too. They are hardly ever a bit seedy! And she's doing fine. I bet yours is too!

    It sounds fine to me, too. The poop doesn't get absorbed, really, into disposable diapers. I find that sometimes dd's poops are seedy and sometimes they're not. I haven't ever really worried about it When it's diarrhea it's more green, mucousy and smelly.

    Everything you ever wanted to know about baby poop but were afraid to ask.
