There are different types of baby poop. They’re not all the same and they definitely do not look the same, smell the same, nor feel the same. Sometimes, it can be yellowish, greenish-black, brown, or light yellow. So, what should your baby’s poop look like?
Newborn Poop or Meconium
Meconium or what other people call newborn poop happens on the first 2 days after your baby is born. Meconium is made up of amniotic fluid, mucus, skin cells, and other stuff that your baby has ingested in utero or inside the womb which is why it looks like motor oil. It is a greenish-black and sticky poop but it does not have a smell.
After 2 to 4 days, your baby’s poop will transition to a more greenish hue. This signals that the intestinal tract is doing it’s job. Your baby’s poop will also be less sticky and will start to look a bit of an army green.
