A Visual Guide on Baby Poop
Tanned and Thick Baby Poop
Formula-Fed Baby Poop
Formula-fed babies have pasty, peanut butter-like texture. In terms of colour, this poop form usually comes in a variety of colours with specks of brown – tan-brown, yellow-brown, or green-brown. Smell-wise, it’s more pungent than poop excreted from breastfed babies and a little less pungent than poop excreted from babies who are eating solid food.
What should I do
Formula-fed infants usually pass from 1 to 8 stools per day during the first week, and gradually slows down to a maximum of 4 stools per day. This usually lasts for up to 2 months. After the second month, most babies tend to pass 1 or 2 stools per day, or 1 stool on alternate days. However, if your baby experiences an increase in terms of number and looseness in stool passing, and if it lasts for more than 3 stools, suspect diarrhea.
