Breastfed Baby Poop Stinky???
I have a one week old daughter who is having no problem at all filling her pants on a regular basis.  She feeds every 2 1/2-3 hours and poos during every feeding.  Aside from the loud blowout, I know she has gone because of the smell!  I thought breastfed baby poop was supposed to have a minimal smell to it! It certainly doesn't smell sweet!  The color and consistency is normal, but it carries kind of a sulfuric/eggy smell to it.  Anyone else have a problem with stinky poops?  Is this something I should be concerned with?  I'm new at this mom thing so any input would be appreciated!

My son had the same smell when he would poo! I always said it was like sulfur, but after a few weeks it went away. I'm not sure what that was about, but his went to the sweet smelling poo. We couldn't even tell when he would mess his pants because there was no smell after about 5-6 weeks. Give it time and I'm sure it will go away. I was wondering about that myself, thinking that everyone said they don't smell.

If the baby is gaining weight and isn't troubled by gas I would say it's normal.  You will find as the baby gets older that the poop will sometimes smell and look differant.  My five month old's smells like curry.

hahah. i laughed when i saw your post because dd was the same exact way the first 2 months of her life. at least 8 to 10 poops a day! and OMG... once she farted when the diaper was open and that sulfur smell literally made my eyes tear and burn!!! it was insane. luckily she also outgrew it once her digestive system matured a little. also, one day she stopped pooping 8 times daily to not for a week. all normal.

Thanks for all your input!  I guess I'll just tolerate the stench for a few more weeks!
