Newborn poop
by: Anonymous

Everything sounds quite normal.

Breastfed babies have runny, mustard colored poop and they do look quite constipated when passing a stool, as their bodies are still adapting.

Some breastfed babies only have one dirty nappy in 10 days or others like mine has one every time they pass a wind or after a feed.

As long as your little one has +/- 6 wet,clear pee nappies a day she/he is not dehydrated.

The crying, sounds like baby has some gas.
Here are a few things you can do to relieve this...

-Burp baby regularly during a feed.

-Make sure baby latches properly, a bad latch can result in baby swallowing winds.

-Massage her tummy to help pass the gas.

-A warm bath can also help.
