Oh, yeah! Every mom's favorite topic.

So... How often does baby poop? What sort of color and consistency are you seeing? Any "blowouts"?
In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.

Gemma poops a lot. like. A LOT! but so did my boys so it's just like them. we've not had a blowout because 1. we're using cloth and cloth keeps it in better and 2. she poops so often that she doesn't poop in large amounts at at time. it's typical mustard yellow and seedy EBF poop

in the beginning she pooped A LOT, yesterday she pooped twice. She isn't really consistent with pooping we have had ONE blowout and a couple leakages. Her poop actually looks like breastmilk poop, yellow and seedy

Alyssa has poop issues. She is considered constipated, and has a hard time pooping, and passing it. We are on our third round of formula, currently sticking with Isomil (soy), seems to be the best for her. She also has prune juice/water, 2oz 2x day, plus karo syrup in each formula bottle, and if needed a despository every 2-3 days. I have had to give her 3 so far, they are not fun. From 5 days of age to 12 days of age she was in severe pain, and even had to go to the ER for Xrays to make sure she didn't have a constricted bowel. All was cleared. Now she has had 3 poops in the past 2 days, and a fair amount, so I hope this new diet is working for her. I think it is. She still has alot of discomfort before and while trying to poop, so we are trying to figure that out. She wales in tears and screaming. My poor lil girl

She poops a lot. I've never paid close enough attention to count.. I would guess 6 or more times. Her poop looks like EBF poop

Gracie poops 4-6 times a day, sometimes it's a huge poo that results in an up the back blowout, and sometimes it's a small smear. She doesn't poop at night, which is different from my boys. It's a typical EBF poop, mustard color and seedy.

Julian poops every other day, sometimes every couple of days. He is a FF baby, and the color is dark green, and very soft. No blowouts yet. I'm a little concerned that he isn't going at least once a day, but when he skips a day or two, he more than makes up for it and I'll be changing poop diapers for a whole entire day.

Emilee's poops are really weird. At first she was pooping like every diaper change, more than a quarter size, EBF poop (yellow and seedy), but all of a sudden she stopped. Now she poops a teeny tiny bit maybe once a day (if that) and then a giant huge poop every couple to several days. The giant poop is not seedy but a bright yellow and even smells like mustard. She has really stinky farts too. Except for the day she has her huge poop she doesn't seem to have any problems with constipation.

Owen goes 3-4 times a day, the typical EBF poo. He only goes a little at a time, so no huge messes (yet).

Jaxon's poop has me curious. For a few days he was constipated, and had little balls of 'rabbit' poop. I am trying to re-lactate to EBF him, and right now I don't THINK I am producing enough to have an effect on him like this, since he is still mainly FF. But his poop now resembles that of EBF poop. This is my first child on Formula, so that link that was posted really helped. Thanks. He poops 4-5 times a day, and no blowouts...yet.
