ebf poop question

8 week old DS doesn't have seedy poop like DS1 did. It smells like ebf poop and is the right color, but it's just liquidy. Is this ok?

He had a dairy sensitivity that we've fixed and I've been wondering if he's sensitive to something else since his colic is gone but he's still a pretty fussy baby.

My daughter's is like that too.  It's mostly liquidy with stringy stuff, barely any "seedy" looking type stuff. :/ She turned 2 months on the 13th and is EBF as well.

Katara's isn't seedy either.  It's more like a really really runny pasty like poop.  It's the right color though, and smells the way it should.

I think it would be odd if it WERE still seedy at 8 weeks . None of my 3 (only one with a dairy sensitivity) had seedy poop by then.
As long as they aren't pooping hard, dry pellets there's no reason to worry about it :)

As long as there seems to be no problems otherwise, I wouldn't think there was a need to worry.

When does it normally stop being seedy? 

DS2 hasn't had seedy poop in nearly a month (he's 13 weeks)m and then all of a sudden he had a couple diapers of it...  I'm not worried, but I was surprised to see it return.

Interesting, I don't remember when DS1's stopped being seedy.

 my son had the same problem.  I was told to stop eating dairy, wheat, soy, gassy foods and eggs for weeks but that did not help.  I also wasn't super strict about it.  Anyway it continued and i ebf until he was 9 months then switched to simila sensitive and his poop started getting firmer then right after he turned one and started eating more food his poop was rock hard every day and after running tests confirmed he is dairy intolerant.  the similac helped my son but it was not dairy free, it was only lactose free. So have you bay tested.  Good luck.

DS didn't really have seedy poop.

It's hard to remember exactly since I've never been one to worry about poop, but it seems like the seedy stuff was completely over with within 3 weeks?
