How on earth do you know if poop is normal or not?
O has pooped A LOT today. Sometimes tiny ones and sometimes big ones, normal colour, a bit more watery than normal but still got solid bits in it. He seems ok in himself but he's got a sore bum, his temperature is fine.

Hey, can you believe our babies are 3 weeks old already?! As for poo - are you breastfeeding? If so breastfeeding poo can be very runny, its normal for a breastfed baby to poo anywhere from once every few days to after each feed. I'd say its normal if hes otherwise well, feeding regularly, alert when awake etc. Has he been feeding more lately? That could explain more poos. If you're bottle feeding then I'm not too sure what's normal in a formula fed baby so that's probably not much help sorry! x

O is FF as the BF just didn't work out for us, sadly.
I think from looking online he's probably ok, I'm just neurotic!
He's got a sore bum so I've started using metanium up try and at least ease that for the poor little man.

I'm the same,I'm constantly online googling stuff to see if its normal.or not, you cant help but worry can you. Ive heard good things about metanium, hope it helps.
