An exclusively BF baby will generally have poops that look like seedy mustard. Yellow to orange, slimy sometimes, and usually with seedy looking "stuff".

Indications of something "off" would usually be green, frothy poops, and/or poopy diapers with the consistency of shaving cream. Large globs of mucous can also be a sign of a problem, but small amounts of mucous may not be an issue, and sliminess isnt too uncommon. They can be pretty watery sometimes as well.

The green, frothy, shaving cream stuff is what you really need to watch out for And of course -if you introduce ANYTHING other than breastmilk, including cereal, medication, vitamins,e tc - it would be likely to have an impact

This is great advice and I have nothing to add really except Anna has some crazy neon orange poops sometimes, lol.

He used to have the seedy stuff, but now it's mostly just liquidy slime. I'm assuming this is normal. Thank you!!!
