White stuff in baby poop....poop is in yellow color and there is some white stuff present in it ...she is 4 months old and is breast feeded.

Hard to says: A 4 months old stool can be green, yellow and seedy. Not too sure what the white stuff is unless seen in real life. I would suggest a visit with your doctor to confirm these findings.

How often do 3 months babies poop thought a day ?

Depends on situation: If baby is breast fed they may stool a little smear every feeding or one big crib full once a week. Breast milk is so well digested that it may not leave much behind for poo. If it is soft, the frequency of stooling is not important.Formula babies go more often, generally 1-3 times/day.. ...Read more

Something in pooh: If the baby is growing and thriving there is nothing to worry about. If not these could represent poor absorption of fat and require a visit to your pediatrician. Baby's pooh can look strange and depends on diet. Changes in the look of the pooh is to be expected with introduction to various solid foods around six months. ...Read more

Is it mandatiry for all hospitals to test babies first poop?

Not necessarily: Unless there is reason to test it it will go in the trash. A past history of drug abuse by a mother, protective service surveillance, or babies with withdrawal symptoms would all prompt such a study. Hospitals do make sure babies have had their first poop before going home. ...Read more

Could be: The first thing I would want to make sure is that your child is gaining weight appropriately and thriving. If that is the case, there are numerous things that could be of help, such as different formulas. That decision can be best made with your child's doctor who will know what formula your child is and/or has been on. Good luck. ...Read more
