Doctor insights on:
Newborns Fishy Smelling Stool
No: A stools color is generally due to the bile added to the poo as it travels through the digestive process. If it moves through quickly, it is more likely a shade of bilious green, slower a yellow & if it has time for gut bacteria to change it further it will be a brown. Baby poo is expected to range well within this green to brown color palate. ...Read more
GI bleeding: Blood in the stool generally means that the GI tract is bleeding. If it's red blood (as opposed to black, tarry stools) then this suggests a lower GI bleed.

Umm: Some animals like Giraffes come out of mother walking because they have to survive from predators.

Newborn exclusively breastfed - 2 months - dark Green stool for 2 weeks- is it a cause of concern?
Normal: The stool color is provided by the bile from the liver that is adds to fecal debris. It starts out a deep green ; slowly changes thru greens to yellows to browns as the germs in the intestines metabolize the bile. Green generally means the stool in question moved through faster or was subject to less change by gut germs. ...Read more
I am breastfeading, took POLYGYNAX ;my newborn stool odor became very strong, after stopping them stool odor went normal, will I continue on polygynax?
If the medication prescribed for your own health I wouldn't stop it. If you concern about breastfeeding and medication transferred to your child, then check please FDA website, which stated that even excreted through your breast milk the concentration is very little and even less in your child's blood.

Word definitions: To be more specific, all infants have a little plug that passes with the initial meconium. Occasionally the plug and some meconium passes before birth as a sign of stress.Meconium ileus is a condition where the meconium is so thick and sticky that it blocks all stool passage and can be a sign of cf.

Itchy anus. Leaks fluids. Sometimes blood on toilet paper after stool. Fishy smell. (I'm a straight male)?
I'm male 24 yo over the last month I have a fishy taste in my mouth when I burp but I do not eat fish, my stool has become very dark and blood in flem?
You need to see: Your doctor to send you to the proper channel. The fact that you have a black stool, mean there is blood above the large intestine, but the fact that you burp it could be from the stomach or upper small intestine, and the fact that you see in in your phlegm means it could even be higher. So see your doctor first for initial work up and then to the proper specialist. ...Read more
I have everyday pain around my tail bone and rectum. Fishy, mucusy feces. Constipation or extreme piles of feces. In a lot of pain. What do I do?
Bulk diet and doc: Hi Larry681. Assuming no gynecological issues, it sounds like this could be chronic constipation and fecal retention in the lower colon. Safest would be to see your practitioner, who might suggest using something like miralax (polyethylene glycol) (otc medication that helps retain water in gut and thus looser bm) and bulk (2 tablespoons of crushed flax seed twice a day in 6-8 oz of water). Then probiotic. Good luck! ...Read more

Affects babies <1mo: In cultures where tetanus immunization is not common, babies are born without any tetanus protection they would otherwise gain from their mother. If you add this to inconsistant hygene, unsterile tools used at delivery, or the application of dung (in some cultures) to speed the separation of the umbilical cord stump, these babies may acquire tetanus and die in the first month. ...Read more
Depends on the state: Many states have either few or extensive tests on the newborn for treatable or significant conditions. In my state dozens are covered including phenylketonuria, sickle cell, thyroid and too many others to mention. Sometimes we check for anemia, blood sugar or infection, : blood tests for ABO reactions are common if mom is o+ and we commonly test for jaundice without drawing blood using a meter. ...Read more
JITTERINESS;: Newborn are normally jittery for sometime, refluxes are brisk, jark with sound, light, simple movement like taping the bed, etc. This is due to immaturity of nervous system, incomplete myelinization of axons, immaturity of neurotransmitters in brain, etc. Other causes: birth asphyxia (less oxygen), insult/injury to brain, poor feeding with low blood glucose, low calcium, maternal drugs, etc. ...Read more
Depends: A brand newborn (1-3 days old) may eat only 1/2 ounce at a time, but a rule of thumb is 2.5 ounces per pound, per 24 hours. Divided into 8 -12 feedings. If the baby is breastfeeding it's harder to gauge, so we usually follow urine output instead -- at least 6 - 8 wet diapers / 24 hours. ...Read more
Spontaneous movement: The babies immature nervous has random muscle movements which maintain the size and tone of muscles long before the baby has any way to control them. It's sort of like a car running in neutral until they shift into gear. Muscles with no stimulation or movement shrink (think spinal cord injury or leg in a long cast).So the wiggles maintain basic muscle size until the kid learns haw to use them. ...Read more
Low platelets count: Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia occurs when fetal platelets contain an antigen inherited from the father that the mother lacks. The mother forms antiplatelet antibodies against the this antigen; these cross the placenta and destroy fetal platelets, resulting in fetal and neonatal thrombocytopenia.

Advantage????: We started seeing the adoption of prone sleeping in the us around ww2 thinking it was safer if they barfed. Cultures that never did had a lower crib death rate. By the 90's studies revealed a lower crib death rate with back sleeping. After it was re- adopted in the us the crib death rate has dropped 40%. I see no benefit of prone sleeping in babies. (they seem to enjoy tummy time more but so what). ...Read more
