  • if she's taking foods, even just a little rice cereal, it's normal, especially if she is in no pain when she poops. the only time to worry is if pooping is painful, the poop has hard pellets in it, or if it has blood or a lot of mucus in it. in any of those situations, call your dr or the on call ped at the local hosp.

  • Is she eating any solids? I don't really know for sure, but if all she eats is breastmilk or formula I would think that isn't normal. However if you have introduced solids-even just cereal, I wouldn't think it was a big deal.
