Good Poop? Bad Poop? Or Is It All Just Poop?

The first baby poop

Technically called meconium, this is the dark greenish black sticky stuff that you'll first see in diapers. It's not true poop but basically an elimination of a substance found in your baby's intestines while he's womb-bound.

Real newborn poop

This is a yellow, mustard, brownish poop that occurs early on. Usually this is less smelly than what's to come later. You may see small seed-like bits in this poop; no worries, that's normal.

Food poop:

Yuck, right? Once your babe starts on solids, his poop is going to get icky and smell way worse. Your baby's poop may be green, orange, or another food-like color, which is normal.

Formula poop

Babies who are fed formula have different poop than breastfed babies (commonly that mustard-looking stuff mentioned above). If your baby eats formula, his poop may be darker brown and can smell of iron vitamins. This is typical and nothing to worry about.
