What does a darker sticky poop mean for newborn? I forgot what the GI doctor told me today. Something about more acid in stomach. Is that right?
NORMAL: The GI tract of the baby is fully formed by 12-16 weeks. The baby swallow small amounts of amniotic fluid which contains some shed hair and surface cells. Small amounts of bile is made by the liver, which adds color to the poo. Enzymes in small amounts digest this debris, but baby is not supposed to stool until after birth. Then the poo is a sticky mess. Stomach acid starts forming after birth. ...Read more

Diet/irritation: If your child is otherwise healthy and doing well in growth and development, I would imagine this episode is isolated to diet and contact irritation of the anal area.

Antibacterial ointment or vaseline can relieve irritation. ...Read more
