Q.

12 day old baby and her poo

Hi I just want to know something please…. My baby is 12 days old and Breast feads only. Her poo is a bright yellow with the “mustard seeds” in it…. But it seems very watery as well. Like the bright yellow stuff plus water coming out there. Is this normal. I must add that I’ve noticed that my tummy is a bit off… should i see a doctor about my baby?

Paediatrician

Her stools sound perfectly normal for a breast fed baby especially as far as the colour is concerned.The only problem is if they are watery. This may be normal in an infant who is drinking a bit greedily, but if they are very wartery it would be best to ask your paediatrician to see her.
