baby poop

This is going to sound wierd, but what does you baby's poop look like. Like that of a 8 month old or older. What is pretty much normal looking. Shouldit just be like a mushy blob, not runny, just soft and mushy, or should it be like outs that comes out you know long and in the form of a turd. Got i hate that word and hate asking it. But i'm not sure what it means when they talk about normal poop. And this would be for a baby that is formula fed and eating table food very well.

  • Everyones (baby, child and adult) poop is different. As long as its not dry or hard, or pure liquid, it's in the realm of normal.

  • Dry and hard is bad. That means baby is straining to have to push something out. That is too harsh on their system. So soft is fine. Runny means their stomach is very upset and that's not good either.
