Salam, sekadar ingin berkongsi..mungkin sebagai rujukan buat teman-temann.. topic yang saya copy paste dari belog saya....

Sticky, tar-like and green or black
is meconium. The first stools of a newborn will be this consistency and
color. It is what is present inside the bowels of a newborn upon birth
and will clear itself out within the first couple of days and
represents the "byproducts" of building an entire human being for nine

Greenish or Yellow/Brown, grainy or seedy
is the transition between meconium and a regular breastfed stool and
begins as mom's milk is coming in on the second, third or fourth day of
life. There may be three stools each day, ten, or even twenty.
Occasionally, even a baby in the first week of life will skip a day and
have no bowel movements at all. Call your doctor to discuss this even
though it is normal. This does not require a dietary change or
supplementation of a breastfed baby.

Light yellow to bright green, loose/runny, curdy, lumpy, seedy, creamy, mustard-like
are normal breastfed stools. The consistency, frequency and color vary
from day to day. My wife described the smell as "curried yogurt".
Opinions on this odor description differ widely.

Frequent Watery Stool often "Greener" than usual
can you spot diarrhea in a baby who has loose frequent stools every
day? This type of poop is "diarrhea" in a breastfed baby. It can be due
to a virus, a bowel infection, stress, anxiety or a food intolerance.

Hard, pellet - like, presence of blood or mucous
is constipation in a breastfed baby and is so very rare that I cannot
recall ever seeing it in a baby who is receiving breastmilk as a sole
source of nutrition, as are most babies in the first six months. It
could be related to a food allergy. Formula fed babies get constipated
much more often and may even have harder bigger stools like older kids
and adults. Getting these stools softer is a balancing act of great

Black stools often accompanied by constipation
is the result of iron supplementation. Iron fortified infant foods and
infant vitamins can cause constipation. A healthy breastfed baby does
not need iron supplementation. The iron in breastmilk is much more
bioavailable than any other form.

Red streaked stools
usually comes from bleeding in the lower intestine or rectum. Most
often it is caused by rectal fissures which are tiny "cuts" around the
circumference of the anus. This can be a reaction to dairy in mom's
diet. Elimination of all dairy is the first line of defense in this
situation. I have seen countless babies who had blood in their poop
which resolved when mom stopped all dairy products and returned with
even a small amount of milk or cheese. Other dietary changes may be
needed for breastfeeding moms. Formula fed babies lose blood from the
lower intestine when they drink cow milk formula and some have the same
losses on soy formula. Occasionally, this "micro-hemorrhaging" can
become visible as blood streaking on the surface of the stool.
Persistent or increasing blood in the stool or blood mixed with mucus
(described as "currant jelly" stool in the texts) requires an immediate
call to your doctor.

Green, frothy stools
can be a result of a hindmilk/foremilk imbalance. A true imbalance is
rare. It is often seen accompanying a forceful letdown. Lactation
consultants will help moms find a nursing pattern which works to combat
this problem. If letdown it too forceful in the early weeks, the
solution can be to allow milk to leak into a cloth diaper during
letdown, then latch baby back on. Feeding two to three times off the
same side may also show improvement. Caution should be used with same
side feeding as it can decrease supply.

Green, mucousy stool
can be a result of a virus. Often the only sign we see of a virus is in
the green stool. This is evidence of malabsorption in the intestines.
Watch for how many days and with what consistency it is occurring. With
a virus, it will run its course over a few days and begin to improve.

ini ada sedikit info bagi ibu-ibu yang risau tentang bayi mereka yang
tidak membuang air besar sehingga berhari-hari lamanya. ;-)

is a great range of frequency of bowel movements with exclusivelu
breastfed infants, rangin from a couple of times a day to several days.
There completely healthy nursing babies that gave a bowel movement once
a week, once every ten days, or even a few that go a bit longer. If
your baby is healthy, developing well, nursing well and the consistency
of the bowel movement when it does make its appearance is soft or
loose, then do not be concerned. It is not constipation if it arrives
in soft form. Constipation Would arrive in pellets and hard formed

".. Stools in breastfeeding babies are predictably greeen, brown, yellow or orange.."
