Poop smells like vinegar?

His poop is the same mustard color, but smells like straight up vinegar and is almost water consistency. It's not seedy or curdy, just liquid. Is this normal? It's smells soooo bad!

Can be normal. Any other symptoms?

He's still not nursing well, though better than before. Other than that, no.

 My son is 4 months old and his poop has gone from smelling like eggs, to vinegar and is now the smell of buttered popcorn. As their digestive system matures, you'll notice a different smell. No worries.

The acidic/vinegar smelling watery poop in my experience was due to allergy, but with my son it was also accompanied by a rash on his genitals. If there are no other symptoms though, I have no idea. :)

What allergy (just out of curiosity)?
