Mengenal najis bayi anda Part 1

Selalu aku cite pasal susu, kali ni nak cite pasal poo poo lak hehehe...just nak share info aku baca dari Babycenter.com , very good info utk mengenal tahap kesiahatn bayi bayi berdasarkan warna dan tekstur.

1.Newborn poo(meconium)
Expect to find a greenish-black, tarry, sticky stool that looks like motor oil in your newborn's nappy. Since meconium is made of amniotic fluid, mucus, skin cells, and other stuff ingested in the womb, it doesn't really smell - so you may not realise it's time for a nappy change.

When your baby is two to four days old, his stools will become lighter in colour - sort of an army green - and less sticky. This transitional stool is a sign that he's started digesting early breast milk or formula and that his intestinal tract is fine.

2.Healthy breastfed poo

If your baby is exclusively breastfed, her stools will be yellow or slightly green and have a mushy or creamy consistency. It may be runny enough to resemble diarrhoea. Breastfed poo typically looks like Dijon mustard and cottage cheese mixed together and may be dotted with little seed-like flecks. Interestingly, its smell isn't too bad.

There are many shades of normal when it comes to breastfed poo. One you might see is a greener hue, which could signify that you have eaten something different to what you normally do. If your baby isn't experiencing any other symptoms, there's no need to worry.

If you see bright green and frothy stools in your baby's nappy, almost like algae, she's probably getting too much foremilk - the low-calorie milk that comes first in a feeding - and not enough hindmilk, the good higher-fat stuff. It could mean that you're not feeding her long enough on each breast. To remedy this, start each feeding on the breast you ended on last time.

3.Healthy formula-fed poo

Formula-fed babies have pasty, peanut butter-like stools on the brown colour spectrum: tan-brown, yellow-brown, or green-brown. It's more pungent than poo from breastfed babies and a little less pungent than stools from babies who are eating solid food, but you'll recognise the smell.

4.Iron-fortified poo
If you give your baby an iron supplement, his stools may turn dark green or almost black. This doesn't happen often, but it's a completely normal variation that would make Popeye proud.

One thing: If your baby's poo looks blackish and he's not taking an iron supplement, it's a good idea to call the doctor to make sure it's not digested blood (melena).

5.Solid-food poo
Once you start changing your baby's input to solid foods - rice cereal, pureed bananas, and so on - you'll quickly notice a change in her output, especially if she's breastfed.

Solid-food stools tend to be brown or dark brown and thicker than peanut butter, but still mushy. It's also smellier.
