Ok, new mommy... paranoid about everything... Sophia is a week old today & ive noticed she's had a couple of orage/yellowish colored dirty diapers. Is this normal? What is it from? Her first pediatrician appointment is scheduled for February 18th. Anything else i may want to know that might have me worried over nothing?

Feb. 1, 2008 at 4:12 AM are you breast feeding?  according to what I was told (just had my son jan. 22, 08 so he is 9 days old) and the paper they gave me to track his feedings and bowel movements is  black tarry 1-2 days, 1 -2 brown then usually a greenish one and then yellow  from then on. But orangish yellow would be the same thing.

Perfect colouration, trust me! I have a chart that says "THE BREASTFED BABY BOWEL" and it shows pictures of all the different colours of poop breastfed babies get from birth and on.

You're doing GREAT!
