12 things you may not know about Babies WEEK #8 Poop, Poop & Poop Again...
It is common that
babies who are breast-fed frequently have bowel movements that tend to be seedy, mustard-yellow coloring
and are liquid and unformed. Bottle-fed
infants tend to have slightly more solid bowel movements with a brownish color
with a slightly more firm consistency.
Frequency vary widely as well. Some babies may poop a dozen times a day,
and others may pass stools just a few times a week. As long as your baby is
gaining weight and has no abdominal pain or bloating, their pooping frequency
is fine.It is very important to become familiar with what is
the typical frequency and consistency for your baby”s bowl habits. If the
frequency, volume, or consistency changes dramatically,
It is a common occurrence for many newborns develop a blister from vigorous sucking on a bottle or breast called a nursing tubercle. These blister are sometimes present at birth because of thumb-sucking in the womb. A sucking callus causes no discomfort to your baby. In fact, the overgrowth of skin stiffens the lip and may make grasping the nipple easier. The callus will disappear on its own in a few months, or it might come and go from day to day.
After spending nine months directly attached to mommy, maternal hormones still course through baby’s chemistry make-up for a few weeks after birth. During these weeks baby girls can sometimes experience a small amount of bloody vaginal discharge. This is brought on by the same hormones that cause swollen testicles and labia in newborns, we mentioned in week #3 of our 12 week series. Finding a small smudge or smear of blood in your baby girls diaper is nothing to cause alarm, these mini mentural periods should last only a few days. Also there are times that highly concentrated urine can appear quite dark and look like blood especially in the folds of the diaper. Signs of bright red blood is not common and in this case you should take your baby to their pediatrician for medical attention.
Yesterday I traveled to a Michigam city called Grand Rapids with my husband. While this AMAZING 24 foot Leonardo da Vinci bronze sculpture is often a main attraction and well worth the 2.5 hour drive, something even more wonderful made this journey extra special.
We made the trip to meet a very dear woman that I have grown to love like family. Although she was
here in Michigan for a business packed weekend she took time to spend the day enjoying time together!
This woman and her sister are truly the kind of people anyone would be fortunate just to know and I feel
so blessed to call them my dear, dear friends! They both inspire me!!! Mia Cara ♥ Angelo Sorreli!

Inspiration comes in different ways on different days for all of us...
If your baby's hands & feet are chilly to the touch
don't be in a rush to crank up the thermostat or
bundle them up in anotherblanket, feel their torso.
If their tummy is warm and pink, your baby isn't chilled. For the first few months a baby's circulatory system is still developing, blood is directed to vital organs and other systems, where it is needed most. A baby's hands and feet are the last body parts to get a good blood supply. It can take several months for a baby's circulation to fully adapt to life outside the womb. during these months it's common for tiny fingers and toes to feel chilly and even look a little pale. As your baby becomes more mobile and active, his circulation will improve.
