Some days janessa (almost 5 weeks) has really watery seedy poops and other days it's dry sticky like gum. Is that normal? Or does it mean she's not eating enough on those days? Could it mean I need to drink more water?

I had a prenatal vitamin do this to my baby before. I switched to childrens chewables and it went away. Im curious to see if anyone else has had this happen. It could be anything. OH! And i noticed that they have much more solid poop if i eat or drink too much dairy. Not sure why though.

Increase the nursing; if there's any scheduling tear up the schedule and nurse on demand. If you're already doing so, you might need to offer more than is being demanded. And take a look at what you're eating, just in case of a reaction.

YOU would get dehydrated before she does if you weren't drinking enough.
