Your baby’s stool may vary considerably in consistency and frequency depending on the type of milk the baby drinks. Breastfed babies frequently have liquid yellowish seedy stools or it may be green with small curds. Babies who are breastfed sometimes have a bowel movement after each feeding. With formula made from cow’s milk the stools are usually pasty and light yellow in color.
Do not worry if your baby has only one stool every two days or six to eight stools in one day as such variation may be normal. Unless your baby has hard pellet like stool for longer than two days or very loose watery stool or blood in the stool you do not need to be concerned about the changes in bowel habits. Ask your baby’s doctor for advice if you’re worried about your baby’s stool.
