Baby should be happy: Babies in the first 2-3 months of life can poop often, sometimes after each feeding. Pooping decreases as a baby gets older, and may eventually be just once a day. There is great variation... a few babies poop once every 2 days, others poop 6 or 8 times a day. If a baby is otherwise normal, eats happily, sleeps calmly, and has a soft tummy, a doctor's exam will usually just find a normal baby. ...Read more

My formula fed foster baby has realy dark green almost black poop and its really runny..Is this normal ? Also he was a drug and alcohol exposed baby

( purple would be weird too, but i've seen that only after purple birthday cake!) also, runny is good for baby poo. ...Read more

:poop:: It is okay for a baby to poop after every feed. The watery consistency does not sound normal however and the baby may have a light stomach virus. I would feed the baby two feedings with pedialyte instead of formula. If the watery poop continues after switching back to formula, I would take the baby to be evaluated or if there is associated vomiting, fever or other symptoms. ...Read more
