This is the most success I've had ebf and am not sure what to look for output wise from ds. He is a week and two days and today he had a massive blow-out of poo that had a gravy consistency. It wasn't the consistency that caught me off guard it was the color. It was bright orange. Up till now they've been kind of broen mustard colored. Is this normal?

Hmmm, if he's not eating anything yet it could be a prob. Idk. Maybe call the Dr just in case. The color is what I'm concerned about.

There is a wide range of normal. You don't want black or white.

Poop comes in many many colors. I would only worry if it was black, white, or bloody.

We have an apt tomorrow. I'm going to ask the dr too.

Orange is within the range of very normal and was typically the color of my ebf babies' poop.  The colors to worry about are black, white, and bloody--those warrant a call when you see 2 of them in a row (though I would call after the first one for white, personally... that's fully white poop not just undigested white chunks of milk).

When I asked about odd poo color when my son was bitty, the doctor said that any "earth tones" aka yellow, brown, orange, green were not concerning with no other signs of a problem. Good luck.
