First bowel movements

Your baby's first soiled diaper — which will probably occur within 48 hours — may surprise you. During these first few days, your newborn's stools will be thick and sticky — a tar-like greenish black substance called meconium.

After the meconium is passed, the color, frequency and consistency of your baby's stools will vary depending on how your baby is fed. In babies who breast-feed, stools will be more frequent, generally soft, watery and golden yellow. In bottle-fed babies, stools will be less frequent, more formed and tan-colored, and have a stronger odor.
