Ok I have a 6 day old. Exclusively breastfed. Poop is watery and yellow. Yellow I'm not worried about I know that's normal, but the watery part worries me. I just changed her diaper and while changing she pooped and it squirted everywhere =/ some of it pooled into a little puddle like water. Help?!

ETA~~~ thank you mama's! You have eased my worrying brain :-)

Loose poops are normal for a baby... they should be loose yellow with little "seeds" of solid poop.

I think that might be a sign of too much fore milk? Try to nurse on one side and remember to put baby back on that side in the beginning of the next feed to get the hind milk.

If you have oversupply express some fore milk first so baby can get the fattier hind milk. I'm not sure if that is the problem but it's worth a shot!

Try the breast feeding group, they have LCs in there!

I didn't know there was a difference in the milk ..... I only knew there was a difference in colostrum and then milk..

Yes, the milk that flows at the beginning if the feed is thirst quenching, more watery milk. After a few minutes the baby gets the hind milk which is creamier and more filling.

Which is why you should begin the next feed on that same breast before switching- to make sure the baby gets all of the hind milk first.
