..oh the poo!

So.. babies poo changes color MANY times.. let's go through it :)

- when first born, it resembles black tar, very sticky too, nothing to be concerned about :)

- a strictly breastfed baby will have very yellow, mustard in color poo and also very seedy in texture..

- a strictly bottle fed babe (formula) will be green, pasta like poo!

- a mix of breastfed and forumal fed will be a mixture of the above two.. it can be rather green, but seedy and yellow as well.. eek!

Now anytime you see red or blood in their stool, is cause for alarm and you must contact the doctor..
