12 things you may not know about Babies

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, 
consult your baby's pediatrician right away.
