The Color of Baby Poop: What Does It Mean?

PoopColorsPosterCROPPEDYes, you should pay attention to what shows up in baby’s diaper. Except upon the introduction of formula or solid foods, any variance in the color of baby’s stools indicates that something’s off—from a slight irritation to a dangerous disorder.

The most common color variance is green—from a brilliant lime green to a dark forest green, with various meanings. Other stool colors can arouse concerns from a bile duct obstruction to malabsorption; from an intestinal obstruction to bleeding high in the digestive tract or bleeding in the lower bowels. From yellow to silver to pink, the color tells a large part of the story of your baby’s health status.
