  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Breast-fed babies have soft, unformed poop that may look a bit like seedy mustard, often a yellow-orange colour, but sometimes greenish. In the first few weeks, breast-fed babies usually pass bowel actions several times a day, perhaps every feed time. After a couple of months, this may settle to once or twice a day, or once every few days or so, but generally the poo, when it comes, is still soft (so this is not constipation). Some fully breastfed babies may go for up to 7 days or more before they do another poo without the baby being constipated. This is quite normal.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
