1 Bump

My 7 week old just had a diaper fillled with meconium. Is it normal for her to have it after having yellow/brown poop for a couple weeks?

  • OK, my bad... I read 7 Day... Yeah, I'm tired!!!

    @ 7 weeks, no... If she's on formula, it comes out in all kinds of weird colors- everything from brown, to yellow, gray, greenish...

    BF babies generally have yellow/orangeish seedy, cheesy looking BM.

  • I would call your doctor. That usually passes after birth. If it is black like tar it could be blood just be sen by your doctor.

  • If she's on formula, yes. If she is breast fed, not so much.

    FF babies tend to be constipated, and it takes a very long time for them to clear their system of the meconium.
