What does foamy EBF poop mean?

Hi! Yesterday, while I was changing DS (almost 4 months) diaper, he was not quite done, and he pooped out foam. I am not kidding, it looked like the foam soap, though definitely not white LOL! He is my 4th baby, and I have never seen this before (may have happened, but I didn't see it, I suppose). He nurses very well and has gained 3 lbs. every month so far. Yes, he's huge! He is the size of a 6 month old baby already, so we would not expect to have health issues or allergies....? It's weird. What causes it?

I would not worry. That's exactly how it looked when I caught sight of it coming out of my babies' butts too. And all of them were super healthy, 90% weight/height, and still healthy as toddlers and grade schoolers today.

I think it's gas making it bubble. Nothing to worry about

I thought my baby was the only one! I always knew when she pooped because her diaper sounded like Rice Krispies

It can mean a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance but there may be other causes too. Is there any spitting up, gas, or tummy trouble? If so you might try staying on one side longer.

Re: What does foamy EBF poop mean?

Good to know he is not the only one! I have seen quite a few poops coming out of my 4 kids, but this is the first time I have seen it foam... crazy!

I had thought he was nursing long enough on one side, but he is a fast nurser, anyway, so maybe not. I have been paying attention more today to be sure he is really emptying from one side. We'll see if that makes a difference. I'll try to get him some more hindmilk. He is not spitting up much or seeming to have tummy trouble, but he does have gas.
