Re: Breastmilk poopie

I could never tell the difference. My sons usually smelled like something rotten to me, LOL. We have a factory here in town that makes stuff that occasionally reminds me of the bf poo smell, LOL. I can't explain it. It does smell - but in the long run it smells better than ff poo in the diaper pail.
I'm not sure if she has diarrhea or not - but it does smell when it's just bf poo (well, it did to me anyway!).

No, I never really understood what people meant when they said bf poo didn't smell bad. At best, it smelled sort of cheesy.

Re: Breastmilk poopie

It does have a distinctive smell- and look to it. It's usually super runny anyway- not a lot of form to it and it's usually a bright orange or mustardy color with little pieces in it that always made me think of cottage cheese. A lot of people think that they have diarrhea because it is so thin- but it's just because their little tummies can absorb it so well that there just isn't much left over to make poop with.
