As the chair at the baby looks

The type of a chair at the baby can frighten even skilled parents. The fact is that excrements at newborns are very different. Color and consistence a calla depend on many factors.


1. At newborns the chair consists of meconium – the viscous mass of a black-greenish shade reminding solid oil. Amniotic waters, slime and the died-off placenta cages are a part of meconium. The kid could swallow all this in a womb. Meconium has no smell therefore in the first day of life of the child the thicket needs to check a diaper.

7. Most sharply the appearance of a chair of the baby changes after introduction of a feeding up. Especially it is noticeable at children who ate exclusively maternal milk before. The Kcal gets more dark, brown shade and a pronounced smell. Sometimes the chair happens color, similar with vegetable puree. For example, orange after the use of gruel from carrots, or reddish after beet puree.

8. Aberrations are expressed in too liquid, similar to yellowish-green or brown water, a chair. Or in the firm lumps similar to pebble.
