I have a baby who is only 5 days old and his poop stinks..BAD! My 19 month olds poop didn't start stinking until he was a month or two old. But oh my goodness....it's BAD! DH and I agreed that he would change the baby's diapers since they don't stink and I would change our 19 month olds diapers (weak bladder and can't potty train yet...) but now that it stinks I'm stuck with both diapers hahaha.. But is it normal for their poop to stink this soon or were we just lucky with our older son?

ususally if babies are breast feed there poo has odor right away.

It's POOP! It is not gonna smell like roses. I think you lucked out with your first one.

Really? I breastfed my daughter until she was three months old...and as soon as I switched her to formula her poop started to stink....LOL  I thought it was the formula making her stink (because that stuff smells so bad compared to breastmilk) but maybe it was just coincidence?

Breastfed babies poop smells sweet. It may be the formula he is on. Try a different kind. Does he have a lot of gas also?
