Baby is 2 months her poop is green, sometimes green/yellow with seeds like the first week she was born with the seeds. Is this normal?

Pretty common: The greenish color in stool is the breakdown product of the bile when it has not been in the gut long enough to go through a change to yellowish or brown. It is normal as is the loose consistency. Some digested material will take on a darker tint than others & the germs in the gut will also impact the final product. I'd ignore the whole issue. ...Read more

Probiotics: Unclear from your question if you had mrsa. If you did, the antibiotics probably killed good bacteria in the bowel leading to this problem. Probiotics are available without prescription that can re populate your GI tract. Also eat foods that are easy to digest such as rice, banana, avoid natural laxative fruits such as cherries, plum, peaches, apricots, increase bulk foods like kale, oats, bran. ...Read more

Breastfeeding my 2nd child who is a week old and her poop smells pretty bad. Poop looks normal, yellow. Is the reason for a bed smell?

Prob Normal: Breastfed babies normal stool are usually yellow ; pasty in consistency, ; often malodorous. Babies have limited gut microbes at birth.

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. Provided the baby is just breast fed, and no other symptoms are present this can be followed up with your doctor at the next appointment. ...Read more

Pooping Problem?: Is your baby being breast fed or bottle fed? Have you started any solid foods? Certainly a change in diet could explain a change in pooping.

Keep cleaning: A newborn or babies poop can be sticky like silly putty but smellier. I would recommend immediate diaper changes as soon as you know he has left you a gift. Soap and water works better than wipes in my opinion. If you have a small tub or kitchen spray this works wonders for clean up. Good luck. ...Read more

Baby poop: What you are describing all sounds very normal. The poop is a reflection of the bacteria in the baby's gut as well as your diet (as you are sometimes breast feeding). Babies often cry when trying to have bowel movements - it's a new thing for them and they have to learn how to relax a sphincter and at the same time are bearing down to push the stool out - they get frustrated/cry - it gets better ...Read more

My 2 year old child has yellow pasty poop. What is the cause for this? He had a stomach virus recently, but he had this several weeks ago as well for about 2-3 days. It went away. And it just came back again.

My 2 year old child has yellow pasty poop. What is the cause for this? He had a stomach virus recently, but he had this several weeks ago as well for about 2-3 days. It went away. And it just came back again.

Good: Good news! The only stool colors we get really concerned about are red (blood from colon), black (blood from small intestine or stomach), or white (liver is not working well). Colors such as brown, yellow, orange, green, blue, or even purple (beets) can all be normal and usually associated with diet. If he has a persistent change in his stool habits, you should contact his physician since this could be a sign of an underlying disorder, but a one-time strange stool that is not red, black or white is usually of no concern.

If he is having continued diarrhea, or a change in color unrelated to diet, give his doctor a call. They may want to check his stool for bacterial, viruses, parasites, and other things to give clues as to why he is having this ongoing problem. Good luck! ...Read more
