My son't poop ranges anywhere from a dark yellowish-brown to a bright orange, lol. I asked my pediatrician, and he said it was fine. I wouldn't worry about it unless you see dark streaks or blood in it. It's also normal for BF babies to have runny poos.

I recall a time my little one did a huge orange poo all over the capsule,but he had jaundice. The midwife said it was the biilierubbin coming out. It was a good thing. But if concerned go to a health nurse or doctor. A simple call could not hurt.

my daughter is now on solids and still BF....what I think is funny is when her poop is two different kinds stuck together in the diaper! One kind is from breast milk the other from solids (often orange), i think it's hilarious!!!

Quoting ASHLEY:

don't worry they say they should be yellow but they will vary in color sometimes based on what you eat.

This is normal for breast fed babies. this is great welcome to the club. Breast milk is the best thing you can do for you baby. Keep it going. I breast fed for 1yr. and I miss doing it, but nothing comes out anymore. So enjoy it while you can.
