Many different forms: Newborns can have as many as 8-10 bms per day to as few as 1 per 4-5 days; they can be green, yellow or brown and have the consistency of cereal, birdseed, slime or mush. Diarrhea is almost pure water repeatedly and constipation is rocky-hard rabbit pellets. Anything in between, any color (except white) or consistency can be normal.

Even variable stool frequency within the confines of this bell-curve is "normal.".

Tincture of time: A first degree burn is one where the skin is red but there is no blistering. They also generally tend to burn or hurt. A true first degree burn should settle down in about 3-5 days. The redness and burning should be gone by then.
