  • Are they hard and look like little pebbles? Was he straining? Or is it just small amounts of the 'normal' soft newborn poop?

  • Seemed like on the formula mine had a lot of little poops to start normal but smaller. But he was 3 months old for that so I'm not as helpful but it does seem like pooping slows down just a bit and becomes a bit more solid in the sense that it's not complete liquid with little chunks(my son's poop was never totally normal but I have changed a lot of babies).

  • I think that can be normal for some infants. DD was all breast and she had little small poops all day long! I swear she pooped more than she peed. That girl went through more diapers and it was no more than a quarter sized one each time! Then about once a weeks he would totally blow up!
