TODAY10/5/12:*********today her stool is watery too.....**********

10/4/12 Yesterday, Cameron's poop turned yellow and mustard seed looking.  She has been cranky too, but doesn't have a fever.  I heard it is normal to have this when they are breastfed, but she is not, and I have not introduced anything new into her diet. She Just has gerber good start gentle formula.  She has been on that for about 10 weeks.  she has also had more bowel movements then usual.
She doesn't have a fever, but seems like she doesn't feel good.

Drakes has not changed.

Any thoughts out there???????
Could this be a virus??

Its normal! My boys poop is always mustard color, seedy and it really looks like mustard consistency. Last doc appointment Maks had a poopy diaper and the doc said that poop was normal looking. They will have different kinds of poop all I know is its normal as long as its not white, or hard poop like adult poop thats bad for them to have.

Well I shouldn't say always. Sometimes their poop is a greenish color. What kind of poop did she have before? Maybe her digestive system is maturing and she is having more poop. I was also told having poop every diaper change is normal to. My boys sometimes have a poopy diaper at every change and sometimes they only poop once a day.

It was greenish/brown.  They usually poop 1-2 times a day, but she has been going 4-5.  The biggest thing is, she just isn't acting herself.  I am going to call the doc in the morning, just to make sure.... But at least I know your boys have the same thing.  I know it's common in breastfeed babies, but couldn't tfind anything on formula fed babies.  Drakes is still the way hers used to be.

Well I hope its nothing and yea my doc said anywhere from yellow to green to brown is ok and normal. Like i said maybe its just her system developing more that she's able to poop more. idk. My boys are now a bit constipated cause we switched them from rice cereal to oatmeal. Normally they were having a poopy diaper each change now its once or twice a day. You can hear them straining to poop and fart. Its so heart breaking.

Christian has been having the same problem the last two days, he has been fussy, having lots of gas pain and straining to pass gas and poop. His poop today was loose and yellowish, and he has only have two poopy dispers. Before he had 4-5 a day. I don't if it has anything to do with the formula, we switching him from gerber good start to soy because he was spittinh up too much.

Ryder's poop changed color all the time and was often that mustardy color.  I breastfed and formula fed, and it didn't seem to matter.  He also pooped several times a day...pretty much after every other feed or so.  I asked my Pedi and she wasn't concerned.   It's more of a concern if intake decreases and output increases, know what I mean?  However, your mommy and always always trust your instincts.  If you think it's possible something is off, then always ask or get it checked.  Always best to be safe!  I remember second guessing myself a lot, I don't anymore.  Usually I'm right...we just know our children.

regular breastfed baby poop is mustard seedy poop... the green one's the one u shud worry about cuz that would mean she/he isnt getting enuf "hind milk" or has diarrhea...don't worry about the crankiness they get more "opinionated" the more they grow up lol. try giving her an extra nap during the day cuz some babies need more sleep than other. also try checking her diaper more often Malik used to hate having a wet nappy especially during the night. he used to wake me up crying his eyes out and once i open the diaper hes fast asleep!

Good luck!

I don't know about her acting different and how many times they should poop a day but I can tell u Masons poop changes color all the time.  Don't know why.  It is usually dark color but I have seen the very yellow looking one, mustard one.  Dr told me it is ok as long as it is not green green or hard.  Ask ur ped, for peace of mind.  Im praying everything is fine with Cameron

Kaden's poop always changed too and he would go from 1 -2 times per day to 5 or 6 and then he all of a sudden changed from 5 - 6 and then only 1 time every 2 or 3 days.   They kept telling me normal....but......the biggest thing is that YOU think she is not herself.    Mom's always know when something is up, so when you have that feeling, its never wrong to call.

she may be beginning a growth spurt. during this time her poo will change and the number of times will increase as well.
