Drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

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.
